This is the main reason why I love driving in Germany.
Stay alert!
I too enjoy driving in Germany, only this year I shall get a RailPass Benzien is just too expensive

Well my friend it was a near miss, one that forced me off the road. I may have even ended up in the ditch who knows in what condition. I was lucky. Perhaps you work in a candy store, for in industry (where I worked all my life) every near miss was to be reported. I posted it here to share it, from your post I see you place no value on it. And that is fine with me Drive safely!

Perhaps some day soon it will be standard (forced by law) and not offered as a additional option as it is today on many cars. You are certainly right it is possible to add the text read back, we already have voice recognition (I have that in both my cars, voice recognishion I mean).

Glad you are ok! I hope at least for now, the cops would be stricter here. I know they are busy with bigger violations, but would be nice if tickets here in Utah are given more often for talking on the cell phone (in hand of course :-) Way too many drivers I see daily with their phone in hand...

This only for the strong minded amoungst you.

When I posted this thread in May the car comming toward me was moving into my lane and I avoided a head on collision ending up in the graval / almost in the ditch.

This video clip demonstrates what the outcome may have been.

Warning .... view only if you are strong at heart ...
