Driving while Distracted

Driving while Distracted

We have all seen the theory that driving while talking on the phone causes numerous accidents because the people on the phone are distracted drivers.  But what if that's not true.  What if the phones don't actually increase accidents to the extent we believe.  Now I wouldn't claim that there is no increase in distraction.  But changing the radio probably increases the level of distraction, as does adjusting the heat and A/C.  The problem comes when we start introducing laws to combat these "distractions."  

Techdirt, and NYT discussed a new study that indicates that laws banning cellphone use while driving apparently haven't reduced the number of crashes.  While it could simply be that the laws have not stopped people from talking on their cell phones, another possibility is that the use of cell phones doesn't make the difference people believed it did.

However, now that the laws are in place, it will be next to impossible to get the law overturned.  If a law doesn't work, if it doesn't have a significant impact for the benefit of society, it shouldn't be on the books.

I believe what you said was actually very logical.
However, think on this, suppose you were to create a killer headline?
I ain't saying your information isn't good., however suppose you added
a title to maybe grab people's attention? I mean Driving
while Distracted | Ascheman Law | 612-217-0077 is kinda
plain. You could glance at Yahoo's home page and watch how
they create post headlines to get viewers interested. You
might add a related video or a picture or two to get readers excited about
what you've got to say. Just my opinion, it might make your website a little livelier.
