    Walking my dog the other afternoon I saw a woman pull out of her drive, youngster in the front seat next to her, another on the back seat, as she held her mobile up to her face talking, why couldn't she just have her conversation before she drove off - probably because she knew she had a 99.9% chance of not seeing a policeman at any time during her journey. In my last 2 years of regular cycle commuting (admittedly on "earlies" it would be around 5:30 am) I saw no more than half a dozen Police vehicles (and one of those managed to close pass me on an A road with a 50mph limit!).
    I was really gutted when my headcam failed to pick out clearly the bus driver looking down at his mobile (clearly texting) as he approached a staggered cross-roads and about to turn right across the traffic:headshake:
