Don’t Drive With Your Brain All Cluttered

Wednesday, March 14, 2012, AM | 4 Comments

When I go on the highway, I see too many drivers talking on the phone, some with holding the phone in one hand, others talking on hands-free phones. Laboratory experiments using simulators, real-world road studies and accident statistics all tell the story: drivers talking on a cellphone are four times as likely to have an accident as drivers who are not. That’s the same level of risk posed by a driver who is legally drunk.

Research shows that…

    Driving and Talking

  • In half a dozen states and many cities and counties, it is illegal to use a hand-held cellphone while driving – but perfectly all right to talk on a hands-free device.

  • A new research now shows that a hands-free phone poses as much danger as a hand-held one. That means the problem is not your in hands but it’s in your brain.

  • Drivers may be distracted to the point that their engaged brains no longer process much of the information that falls on their retinas, which leads to slower reaction times and other driving problems.

  • Studies show that cellphone conversations are highly distracting compared with other speaking and listening activities in the car.

  • That means if you think that listening to talk radio or an audio book would degrade your driving skill, it does not.

  • Nearly every driver with a passenger found the rest stop, in part because the passenger often acted as an extra set of eyes, alerting the driver to the approaching exit. But among those talking on the cellphone, half missed the exit.

  • A friend of mine talks all the time on a hand-held phone while driving. When I told him about the new research, he said “Well, I can’t help it. The problem is not in my hands.”

  • Despite the overwhelming body of evidence that cellphone chat while driving is risky, the idea of a total ban is sure to be controversial.

  • Albert Einstein once said “If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk?”

  • I say “If cellphone chatting while driving is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is no chatting at all?”

  • But still I would say “Cellphone chatting and driving don’t mix.”

In a Nutshell
So please don’t drive and talk on the phone at the same. Driving and phone chat don’t mix just like driving and drinking don’t mix. If you are distracted because you are on the phone talking while driving, you need to de-clutter your brain so you drive with more concentration.
