    Not unless you are spending a considerable amount of time changing radio stations or CDs. It mostly regards times when a person takes their eyes off the road, and a conscious interaction with the device distracts you from making immediate reactions to upcoming road or traffic conditions. When you stop and think of it, it only takes a split second to hook your wheel in a soft shoulder, and it requires a definite need to react in a calm manner to begin the process to recover within a few seconds.

    Yes.  Concentration is required for conversation...not so for listening to music.

    sawali music related may include looking for a cd or changing one etc

    Ducky Then you have a problem. Would that happen as often as people making and receiving phone calls, on an on-going basis?

    I've seen people reading a newspaper at 70 MPH. Women applying makeup at 70 MPH. Amazing more people don't die on the road.
