Mobile phone driving as bad as being drunk

Posted on Saturday, July 01 2006 @ 20:35:49 CEST by

Researchers found that people who talk on mobile phones while driving, even using handsfree devices, are as impaired as drunk drivers.
Frank Drews, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Utah who worked on the study, said: "If legislators really want to address driver distraction, then they should consider outlawing cell phone use while driving."

The researchers used a driving simulation device for their study, published in the summer 2006 issue of Human Factors: The Journal of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society.

They studied 40 volunteers who used a driving simulator four times - while undistracted, using a handheld mobile phone, using a hands-free mobile phone and while intoxicated to a 0.08 percent blood-alcohol level (the average legal level of impairment in the US) after drinking vodka and orange juice.
