    I've practiced in my car on a couple of occasions (not very satisfactory, and had a few carpark users peer in)... but not in traffic! I note he wasn't fined for careless playing, so maybe he was good?

    Dumb! Hose trumpet is totally different but should never be done in traffic!

    Well, Mr Morrison is 25 years older, and comes from New South Wales, so possibly not.

    Never played in a moving vehicle, but have buzzed along (without any mpce) with a few tunes at times.... A mouthpiece through the teeth with an airbag activation is not likely to be survivable - and may waive any insurance as a suicide...

    Trumpet in hand - well that is dumb.
