If you see them driving on the road, they are probably swerving around trying to stay on the road because they can’t manage two things at once. Most of the time on the interstate you will find them cruising along at about 50 in the fast lane, blocking traffic due to the fact they are oblivious that they are going under the speed limit.

Cell phones are amazing pieces of technology, but like everything else, there is a time and place for their use. One of the times they should not be used is while driving, and there has been much speculation that cell phone use while driving can impair the driver. In order to make this experiment valid it must have a controlled conditions, the subjects used must be chosen at random and free of bias, and the only difference between both the controlled and tested conditions is the use of a cell phone.
