Is talking on the cellphone as dangerous as texting while driving?

Posted under Uncategorized

In recent months, many lawmakers and other critics have come out against texting while driving. As numerous studies have shown, texting while driving significantly inreases the chance of a car accident.

The increased accident rate is largely due to the fact that the drivers are distracted when they text. Many drivers, however, do not realize that they put themselves at similar risk when they talk on their cell phones while driving. 

According to some reports, while drivers are able to keep their eyes on the road while talking on their cell phones, they are somewhat distracted because they are performing two mental activities at once.
