I remain firmly of the opinion that a driver should drive, and not sip coffee, or listen to the radio, or text his lover, or use cruise-control. As a cyclist, I rely on the pilots of these road-going behemoths to pay attention to the road in order for me to remain alive.
So I have mixed feelings about a gadget which puts a cellphone within such easy reach.
The suction cup is evacuated with a lever, and the phone can be set at any angle.
Having the phone up in the field of view will certainly keep a driver’s eyes closer to the road, but having anything other than a steering wheel, three (or two, in the U.S) pedals and a gear-shift is a distraction. Then again, you probably shouldn’t listen to me: I’m one of those hippies who thinks that cities should be designed for the people that live in and use them, not for the cars that ruin them.
