Drives Me to Distraction

As I've long argued, eating and changing CD's while driving is probably at least as distracting as talking on a cell phone without a hands-free device, which is now banned in NJ as well as a few other states. Now research shows that drivers under the influence of distractions are involved in 8 out of 10 car crashes. My take on this is that this is relatively good news: you can make yourself substantially less likely to be in a car accident if you just avoid these types of distractions. And convice the other people driving around you to do the same, of course.
