you mean bulkhead seats, which are very desirable to frequent fliers
because of the additional legroom and that there's nobody in front to
recline into their space.
bulkheads are also *just* behind first/business class seats, with pax
who are paying premium fares.
not that it matters a whole lot, since a screaming baby can be heard in
the entire cabin.
Never bothered us either, while we have made many (several dozen) of
very long flights (Europe to Australia, some 14+9 hours in each
What however bothers me a lot are crybabies and there are a lot of
those, especially in this thread!

That doesn't mean it's causing accidents.
In fact, since nobody can find the accidents, it's pretty clear
that using a cellphone doesn't cause accidents any more than
eating a banana does.
You are clearly not a scientist.

Couldn't agree more. When I'm in the car, I drive. I pay a lot of
attention to other drivers, since I can't control what they do, I want
to be sure that I'm aware of what they're doing. I do not talk on the
phone when I'm driving, even though I can answer my phone without
touching it. Nothing is that important to me.
Sometimes I think people are stupid. They think they have some super
power to not get hurt. Why do people go hiking, and take their phone?
Makes no sense to me at all.
It's just communication. Do you object to people talking to each other face to face? How about phoning each other? What's the difference? It's all communication. What about people like you who chat on newsgroups?

Not that simple. Two people talking in the car is less distracting and
as the driver you can easily ignore the other person whule your brain
copes with the traffic condition of that moment. Same with ignoring the

Firstly I was talking about the objection of people using phones while standing in the pavement.
Secondly I disagree, a phone conversation is just talking, it's not "more intense". The only difference is the person is not visible. In fact with someone in the passenger seat you might be tempted to look at them while speaking. Since that's not possible on a phone, a phonecall is LESS distracting.
Cindy once remarked to her dentist that she didn't know what would be worse - having a baby, or having a tooth pulled.
The Dentist replied, "Well make up your mind, Cindy - because I need to know which way to position the chair."
Your second paragraph explains my point well. Only a complete and utter moron will prioritise a phonecall over driving. In everyday life, we are constantly prioritising without even thinking about it. And there is no reason to penalise sensible folk by making it illegal to do two things at once, just because a few morons are incapable of it. If I'm driving along with my phone to my ear, and I need to swerve round something, I will simply drop the phone. I have done so in the past.
Only public user defined types defined in public object modules can be used

That doesn't magically negate or refute his first paragraph. A person on
the other end of a phone line doesn't have eyes on the road or
environment around the car, and cannot react to changing circumstances
the way a passenger can.
