Debunking the Myths of Distracted Driving and Cell Phones – The Garage Plan Shop

Filed under Driving Safety

I recently came across an info-graphic that certainly caught my attention. It was created by the National Safety Council to debunk a few myths about safety when talking on a cell phone while driving. Many of us have the misconception that it is OK for us to talk and drive. However, the info-graphic supports the idea that talking on a cell phone while driving is considered multi-tasking, yet our brains are not capable of multi-tasking. This means the human brain cannot successfully do two “thinking tasks” at one time therefore, making it dangerous to us and others on our roadways when we choose to talk and drive whether with a handheld or a hands-free device. Review the info-graphic for yourself and consider hanging up the phone while you’re behind the wheel.
