Re: Univ of Utah studies find up to 27 seconds of mental distraction for drivers after using new hands-free technologies

Let's agree on something... the term "distracted" is not a measurable term... We have been listening to the radio, music, news, and talk radio since there have been radios on cars... Saying that listening to the radio or audio tapes is dangerous is BS...
The REAL danger are the stupid people who drive on the highway, or even regular roads while looking down away from the road to text, dial, or work their ever-growing dashboard TV screens... They kill people because they are moving at highway speeds and are not looking at the road for long periods of time.

That original article was really bad research that people will latch on. I am sure that some have found that water and air are bad for your health...

Join the campaign to ban Dihydrogen Monoxide!
Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a colorless and odorless chemical compound, also referred to by some as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide, Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid. Its basis is the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, a species shown to mutate DNA, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical neurotransmitters. The atomic components of DHMO are found in a number of caustic, explosive and poisonous compounds such as Sulfuric Acid, Nitroglycerine and Ethyl Alcohol. . . .
