E-Mail
Hi Buzz Crew
Regarding the email on BOL952 of Roel, from Belgium, I wanted to let you know how are things here in Portugal.
You can’t have distractions while driving and you should keep both hands on the wheel while driving.
This means no GPS navigating, text messaging, call making or even cleaning your nose. This last one happened to a poor guy about a year ago in Oporto, my hometown.
This guy was in traffic using tissues to clean his nose while driving and some police officers took this law so literally that they pulled their car by his side and gave him a ticket.
Love the show, I hear it everyday on my headphones while riding my bicycle to work.

André Henriques ~ Portugal
