Default DUH! News of the Day: Not Looking Where You're Driving Causes Accidents

A new study indicates drivers who are texting while behind the wheel are six times more likely to be involved in an auto collision. The most recent study was conducted using a driving simulator, and six of seven accidents during training were caused when the test driver was texting. Drivers who read text messages have slower braking time than drivers who write messages, but researchers indicate both practices are potentially dangerous.

I've heard that people driving, are likely to cause more traffic accidents than people staying at home... Just a rumour, though...
