More on Distracted Drivers

Following my post on distracted drivers the other day, my brother sent me this cartoon:

It is definitely a common issue, isn't it?

He also included this information: 

New studies have found hands free to be just as distracting. Turns

What about with someone in the car? It seems when they are in the car
the driver can focus on the road and get cues from the passenger.
