Q3. Can drivers watch videos during driving?

 

Regulation 37 of the Road Traffic (Construction and Maintenance of Vehicles) Regulations (Cap. 374A) expressly confirms that any video display unit visible to the driver in a vehicle could only display information about the current state of the vehicle or its equipment, the current closed-circuit view of any part of the vehicle or the area surrounding the vehicle, information about the current location of the vehicle or information for the purpose of navigating the vehicle.

 

A driver watching video while driving definitely is in breach of the said regulation 37 and is liable to a fine of $10,000 and imprisonment for 6 months.
