    These Ludites also say that playing music on your radio is distracting.

    Big Mother will soon require documentation that you haven't drunk alcohol or taken any medications for a week, will not listen to any music or spoken word while in motion, and will place one's children into hermetically sealed boxes before the ignition will actuate.

    It's ironic that highway deaths per mile driven are at an all-time low, yet we allow our freedoms to be eaten away by these mommy-statists. Yet motorcyclists continue to ride without helmets.

    We live in Crazy World.

    I just read that two mothers who killed their kids backing out of their driveways successfully campaigned to get rear cameras made standard equipment. I'm sure they feel the fault was with the their cars not having the cameras, and that new cars should all cost more and be more complicated, rather than have parents have a vague idea where their kids are as they leave the house.

    Well it is true humans can only do 1 thing at a time. There are inherent risks in doing anything but watching the road and steering the car. Listening to something requires some level of concentration that is no longer focused on driving.

    I disagree. IMO humans are consummate multi-taskers. Computer CPUs can only simulate that by time-slicing or employing aggregate CPUs. If we weren't multi-taskers, we wouldn't be able to walk and talk at the same time.

    I'll alert the American Psychological Association and the American Psychiatric Association of Hauler's opinion.

    According to Wikipedia, they already know: http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...&hl=en&ct=clnk

    It's not that we can always do many tasks at the same time and perform all of them as well as if each was the only task, it's that we can do several at the same time that defines us as multi-taskers. And, since some of us are much better at it than others, why do we all need to be restricted in how many tasks are allowed?

    PS I'm not trying to argue, and I'm leaving this thread.
