Turner-nominated artist Jeremy Deller has compiled a book of quotations for drivers to read out in an attempt to get us thinking.

So what else might you be hearing as you sweat it out waiting for a clear platform at Earl's Court?
"Everyone should be respected, but no-one idolised" (Albert Einstein)
"There's more to life than increasing its speed" (Ghandi)
"Hell is other people" (Jean-Paul Satre)
So, is this a great idea to steer the idle thoughts of commuters or just more bloody noise pollution?
