BBC presenters lecture on road safety while not looking at the road

A BBC road safety series has been criticised for having its presenters drive while looking at the camera in an episode focussing on distraction.  The AA accused BBC2’s How Safe are Britain’s Roads? of setting a bad example.

Most car drivers guilty

Most car drivers are guilty of taking their eyes off the road when no need to. If you drive a car I bet you do. Not  texting on mobile or using sat nav. But if you are driving with  one passenger in front ,   When talking you look at them. Its human nature but no need. You are less than a foot away from them they know you are talking to them as no one else is there. Everyone I have been in a car does this. May not look every time they say someting but really shouldnt do it at all.  Next  time your on your bike following a car which has passenger you will see . Taxi drivers are good at talking and looking where they are going at the same time.
