Cell Phone Use As Bad As Drunk Driving?

That's what the headlines are saying. A University of Utah study of 40 volunteers using a driving simulator found those talking on cell phones (hands-free or not) performed worse (not 'as bad') than those with blood-alcohol levels of 0.08, the standard lower limit for impaired driving. Maybe that's because having a BAC of 0.08 does not actually mean your "drunk"? It would have been interesting to pump up the alcohol consumption of the volunteers to see how high the BAC would have to go for them to be worse drivers than cell-phone talkers.

It is very difficult for me to take a comment seriously from one who does not know the difference between 'your' and 'you're'
