Get Off the Cellphone, You Idiot!

Yet another study shows that talking on a cellphone is distracting to drivers


So we get yet another study showing that talking on a cellphone distracts drivers. All of us have seen it. The guy creeping along at 15 miles below the speed limit, or turning awkwardly, or weaving a bit in the lane. The phone stuck to his ear.

And that's just the worst of the bunch. Many other bad drivers are using hands-free kits. We can't see the phones, but they're there.

We all end up doing sometime. I also fiddle with the radio sometimes when driving and know I shouldn't. Nobody should be in denial anymore about cellphones and driving. Bad combination.
