Shut Up and Drive

july 12, 2005

I admit, I do it sometimes -- you know, talk on the mobile phone and try to drive at the same time -- but, I try my best to limit the conversation to a quick one. So, with that admission, I'll have to say that I and the rest of you should just shut up and drive. There is a study published in the British Medical Journal that shows that drivers who are talking on the phone -- whether direct with a phone in their hand or using a hands-free device -- are more likely to get into a car accident than someone who is driving without any distractions.
