That’s a good question..

A friend of mine asked me a really good question today over lunch. What’s more dangerous, driving while shaving with an electric razor or talking on a cell phone?

I answered…”Where am I driving to?”

I know that sounds like a weird question to ask back to the original but if it was here in town, then I would say that driving here would be dangerous. There are potholes, sharp turns, javelinas,  and deer to worry about. You need to have both hands on the steering regardless of where you are but these days most people have a Bluetooth or are synced through their cars. They don’t need to hold their phones to talk on them.

I’ve heard reports that a persons reaction time is slower when they are talking on the phone, about 3 second when they are walking I don’t remember what it is for driving, but for the most case I still think that you can talk on the phone and drive at the same time. I have done it before, especially when I am on a long trip, but I will not answer my phone when it’s a text message. Where do you stand on this one? Is your car a phone free zone? Isn’t that what Oprah has been pushing for awhile?
