Is it illegal to drive with headphones on?

Yes, if both ears are covered- I think you can have one earpiece in, but it's dodgy as you can be easily distracted by the music and the police will mark you down for it if you are in an accident. There is talk about making headphones completely illegal whilst driving.

I'm not sure about the legality... but it strikes me as an exceptionally stupid thing to do regardless of the law. You are in charge of a vehicle... it's not a toy or a video game.. 1½ ton of metal moving at speed... think about it ffs.. cos it's a bit late AFTER an accident!
