More proof of the idea that the physical act of holding a phone isn't dangerous, it's the distraction of talking on the phone that's the real danger. I'd like to see this experiment done with a non-distracted driver, with a driver talking using hands-free, and with a driver talking to a passenger in the car. I know I can sometimes forget where I'm going or even miss traffic signals when I'm distracted with a conversation.
Conventional wisdom — and the law in many states — says that using a Bluetooth device is safer than hands-on when using your cell phone while driving. Others contend there is no difference. Who's right?
