    Just today I observed three vehicles swerving from lanes
    and all three drivers were using cell phones. It's getting
    ridiculous out there!

    Ok so when are getting old people off the road; if i have to give up my
    cell to get nana and papa off the road i will. Old people are much more
    of a danger than cell phones.

    Well the study said cell phones made young driver equivalent of a
    senior behind the wheel. That is only while they are on the phone. The
    senior is a senior from the start of the trip till finish. So the
    senior is a less capable drive for a longer period of time. I have no
    problem using my cell phone when I drive. However i use my hand device
    and i pay attention to the roads. I think food is much more of
    distraction than a cell phone.

    Bzzzt! Reading conclusions into the study that aren't there!

    This is not applicable support for your assertion, so I'll repeat my
    request that you cite the source of your assertion.

    > problem using my cell phone when I drive.


    You don't *think* that you do, but in fact, yes, you do. It's
    quantifiable.

    > I think food is much more of distraction than a cell phone.


    Fortunately for everyone, your guesses and opinions aren't science.
