Talking on mobile while driving??

Sunday, November 2, 2008

According to the sources, about 10 percent of the people on the road during the day are using cell phones, up from 8 percent in last year. Six percent of drivers were holding the phones to their ears, up from 5 percent last year.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which issued the report, recommends that motorists use cell phones while driving only during an emergency.

Motorists who use cellphones while driving are four times as likely to get into crashes serious enough to injure themselves, according to a study of drivers in Perth, Australia, conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The results, published in July 2005, suggest that banning hand-held phone use will not necessarily improve safety if drivers simply switch to hand-free phones. The study found that injury crash risk didn't vary with type of phone.

See this video which gives a simple example, how it is not possible to concentrate on what you are doing, if you are talking on a mobile.

So my sincere advice is not to use mobile while you are driving, working or doing any important thing, unless if it is an emergency call.
