I'm fine with in-car convos ... but on the phone I find myself concentrating way too much on the convo than the road, not sure what it is - perhaps it's the extra element of imagining the person on the other end..

overhearing one half of a phone conversation is so distracting because your brain finds it hard to predict what words will come next.

"Because overhearing a cell-phone conversation entails access to only half of a dialogue, the speech content is less predictable than that of a full conversation," the researchers said.

While some may view the study as simply confirming a pet peeve, there was a serious side to it as well.

Other studies have already shown that talking on a mobile phone while driving impacts performance, but this one shows that a passenger talking on a phone could have a similar effect.

"These results suggest that a driver's attention can be impaired by a passenger's cell-phone conversation," the researchers said.

I can't hear my radio or phone anyway
And the constant bumps and rattling make trying to affix a gps unit or type on your phone impossible

I don't read or text while driving but I've got to get out of the habit of checking the phone at the lights. Everyone seems to do it but I know I'll get caught one day.  Not sure the best way to deal with this.  Maybe leave the phone on the back seat while driving?
