Don’t Talk and Drive

Hands-free car phones are ‘as dangerous as drink-driving’

Using a hands-free kit while at the wheel is as dangerous as drink driving, according to a study of volunteers in a driving simulator. The researchers conclude that all mobile phone use while driving should be banned.

This certainly doesn’t come as much of a surprise to me. One thing in favour of riding a motorcycle, as I do, is that there are far fewer distractions. I’m sure that’s a major reason why bikers seem to be the cause of fewer accidents.
