New Research Reveals ‘Hands-Free’ Texting Still Dangerous, Parker Waichman LLP Warns
Date:6/14/2013

In fact, wireless technologies such as Bluetooth and Siri (a voice-activated system for communicating with the iPhone) may make hands-free texting and talking even more dangerous than hand-held devices when used on the road, the study says.

The study measured drivers' brainwaves while they were multitasking and found they had to cope with a heavier "mental workload" and additional distractions when using voice-to-text email features as opposed to talking on a cellphone, whether hand-held or hands-free, according to the study.

Voice-activated features also increased "distraction levels" and heightened risk, said Peter Kissinger of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, in a June 12 report on NPR's website. Test drivers experienced "tunnel vision or inattention blindness where motorists don't see potential hazards right in front of them," he said.

Laws have made cell phone usage while driving illegal in some states. In others, however, while hand-held cell phones are banned, hands-free ones are not. CBS/AP, for example, noted in a June 5
