Food Fight Follow-Up

The other day I posted about the article in the New York Daily News that claimed "A new study shows a staggering 80% of all car accidents and 65% of all near misses are caused by distracted drivers being more focused on their burgers than on the road."

Interestingly, a new study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Adminstration says that: "...motorists talking on a phone are four times as likely to crash as other drivers, and are as likely to cause an accident as someone with a .08 blood alcohol content.

One can only assume that a lot of people must talk on their cellphones while also eating and intoxicated. Actually, that might account for some of those late night phone calls I get.
