Some Not So Stunning News

Distractions cause most car accidents.

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Those sleep-deprived, multitasking drivers - clutching cell phones, fiddling with their radios or applying lipstick - apparently are involved in an awful lot of crashes.

Distracted drivers were involved in nearly eight out of 10 collisions or near-crashes, says a study released Thursday by the government.

It make the obvious a now documented fact, but I doubt it will actually change personal behavior.

Accidents only happen to other people.
