Driven Crazy


Reader Justin Cook points to this USA Today story on the perils of "distracted driving." The piece cites a University of Utah study showing that drivers with a .08% BAC performed better on a driving simulator than subjects chatting on cell phones. So does the article's author infer that the .08% cutoff is probably a little silly? Of course not—the study proves that those insidious talking drivers are even more dangerous than "drunken" drivers.
