so i dont have to listen to them friggin bickering whilst im trying to negotiate the M62 at 70MPH!!!! with lorries whislting past me

OMG i felt like pulling over and turfing them out to hitch their own way home.

Either that or i drive with ear muffs on and look a complete twunt!!!....<<S@2 cranks up the radio in hte car to cut out the screams from the back!!>> grin

You mean you don't tie them to the roof rack?

buy an old london cab...i used to have one

with the screen window shut and foot hard down you hear nothing

...not even the radio

We have often wondered why family cars don't have these as standard. Would be a great contribution to road safety IMO.

Strangely I was thinking the same when I was driving to Holland with my 2 DC (3 and 5) the other day! Preferably blackened out too so you cant see what goes on in the back...

maybe a child bubble is the way forward grin

Go for DH's solution - loud dance CD, keep turning it up every time you can hear them. Net result - two small children head-banging along to music and me with thumping headache hmm

I too want one of those screens - although no doubt they would just throw stuff at it.

yep dh drives a black cab. Car trips with me and the dcs don't seem to bother him anymore..Unfortunately only 1 front seat.
