Mobile Phones Distract Drivers More than Chatty Passengers

Talking on the mobile phone while driving is one of the biggest don’ts that people many times ignore. If it wasn’t clear enough already, researchers emphasize this with the results of a new study.

We’re not talking only about using the cell phone while driving, but also about handsfree devices, as none of these situations turns out to be safe. When carrying out a conversation with a passenger in the car, there are smaller chances that the driver will succeed in executing maneuvers, as they can also receive warnings from the other person.

Still, results show that none of the two options are recommended for safe driving, as they distract attention from the road.
