A study in the New England Journal of Medicine found a four fold increase in the risk of an accident for people who drive while phoning — the same risk as driving with a 0.08 blood alcohol level, the legal limit.
This shit has gotta stop. There is no worse place to talk on the phone than in your car. You cannot safely operate a cell phone and a car in modern traffic conditions at the same time. No phone call is worth people dying for so get over how god damn important you are and turn your full attention to the road. Driving is ungodly dangerous. It is the leading cause of death among the non-elderly. Yet no one treats it as if it was dangerous. Quit fucking around with your kids, quit talking on the phone, quit eating, doing your make-up and reading and fucking god damn fucking drive.
