It seems to me that there are a LOT less people chatting on cell phones, texting, and doing other non-driving tasks when the roads are wet & rainy, with fog all round. That would suggest it's safer to be around those people who are, unusually, focused on the task at hand. That being the case, why do the roads fill up with fender benders and other collisions in such conditions? In the olden days, that'd be a no brainer question, but now we're seeing people claim that talking on a cell phone is like driving drunk. I'd think that driving drunk would be worse than a little fog & other moisture.
Hmm, perhaps this cell phone while driving, while certainly not real desirable from my standpoint, isn't as bad as we think?
