Cell phone alerts are dangerous to drivers

Bill Snyder | July 29, 2015
The conventional wisdom that hands-free phone conversations behind the wheel are safe may be wrong. A new study finds that even a short alert can be a dangerous distraction.

I won't repeat the statistics about how many people are killed or maimed because of distracted driving. It's a huge number, and as I noted at the top of this post, you've probably already heard it. But now that you know that even hands-free is not safe, I hope you'll change your behavior and switch that phone into airplane mode when you're in the car.
