judgecorp writes "The Instute of Advanced Motorists in the UK has carried out real-live tests which prove that using smartphones impairs driving ability more than drug or alcohol use, making reaction times 37.6 percent slower. The result is a big concern since a quarter of drivers admit to sending texts from their phones while driving. We should point out that no one was harmed in these trials, which took place in a driving simulator."
