Oprah isn’t the only one spreading the word about the dangers of texting and driving and talking and driving.
According to neuroscientist René Marois, PhD, associate professor of psychology at Vanderbilt University, “The human brain isn’t equipped to concentrate on two things simultaneously.” It’s not surprising then that the American College of Emergency Physicians reports a rise in texting-related emergency room visits. A new British study has found that texting while driving slows reaction time more than being drunk or on drugs. And the results can be deadly, as with the California train wreck last September that involved a texting engineer.
