Technology allows us to make phone calls, dictate texts or emails and update social media while driving – all actions that are proven to increase crash risk. Driving and cell phone conversations both require a great deal of thought. When doing them at the same time, your brain is unable to do either well. For example, it's nearly impossible to read a book and have a phone conversation. While driving, this often results in crashes due to delayed braking times and not seeing traffic signals. http://www.nsc.org/learn/NSC-Initiatives/Pages/distracted-driving-awareness-month.aspx
