The driving disconnect got a lot worse in Europe as technology advanced and traffic got far worse. In a 2017 interview with Chris Rea
, he told Songfacts: "There are two types of driving now. There's driving for pleasure, where you feel the car, you love the car and you think about your driving. But for everybody else, which is the majority now, you're actually, psychologically, not driving. You're in your kitchen. That's what seems to have happened with telephones in the car and TV systems in cars. I've started to notice lately that people aren't driving, they're just in their kitchen and they get there."
