We’ve all done it at some point in the past, and my bet is, some of you reading this post still do it fairly often. That’s right – talking on your mobile phone while driving. By now, the research is now pretty clear – driving while talking on the phone significantly decreases attention and increases the risk of vehicle accidents. It has joined alcohol and speeding as the leading factors in fatal and serious vehicle crashes, and it puts you at four times greater risk of a vehicle crash. Yet I am constantly surprised at how many people still believe they can talk on the phone safely while driving because they use a hands-free device.
