too dumb to drive

Posted by on July 13 at 11:06 AM

This latest cellphone/driving study (hands-free blabbing doesn’t seem to be less risky for divers) makes me wonder: What’s different about talking on the phone and talking to someone present in your vehicle? Is there a different set of brain processes at work during phone convos? Can the average brain really not handle simultaneous tasks? Will someone soon recommend no talking at all while driving? What about singing along to Bjork off key?
