When your driving, is talking on a cell phone any different than talking to a passenger?  Your always hearing on the news how cell phones are causing crashes, but what about the drivers just having a conversation with someone in the car?

I've never had trouble driving while talking on my phone. I think all that is way overhyped. It's like number 5 on the list of stupid things that drivers do and cause accidents. Dialing is another thing, but talking doesn't seem to be that bigga deal from my experience...

There are many studies that show very little difference between hands free cell phones and the regular ones.  It's not the handling of the phone, its the conversation that is distracting.

I've been doing it for... about year, year and a half, and the only thing that I've almost done is back up traffic because I was texting someone and the light was green and I didn't relize it till some one honked their horn.   Texting while Driving... thats rough...  Talking?? Nah... Cell phones and cars shouldn't be banned, if they ban cell phones why dont they ban Music?

it's been proven that it does affect your awareness. my problem with it, if you wanna ban it, ban it equally accross the board, and you know what? enforce the ban while you're at it. the cops here don't do anything about it.

There have been studies that have shown that your reaction time whilst talking on a cell phone is worse then whilst driving intoxicated.

edit- I'll see if I can dig up said studies.

edit2 - read (sorry if you don't have acrobat reader, it's a pdf

In this article, there's not concrete proof, but they state that evidence exists that seems to point to the fact that cell phone talking is worse than driving drunk.

ive been in a car with my friend during 3of his 5 wrecks.  All of them caused because he was talking on his phone to some girl, stopped paying attention, and rear-ended someone at a stop light.  talking on a phone while driving should be banned, as well as putting on make-up

But what I'm wondering is, is talking on a cell phone any different than having a conversation with someone in your car?
