How does the distractedness rating correlate with dangerous driving?
There are many levels of being distracted. For instance, is it likely to cause something minor, like missing your exit? Or something major, like running a stop sign?
Understand the irony, but really, shouldn't MCX be guilty of collusion? Multiple powerful retailers, all banding together to eliminate an industry standard (NFC) so that their proprietary service can be used?Like you said, if Apple was anti-competitive they'd be nailed. Why is Walmart et al exempt? Honest question.
Dumb study is dumb. Where did they correlate the "distraction" with being dangerous?
Being mentally distracted doesn't necessarily mean dangerous driving conditions. Maybe missing a turn, or some such. I know when I'm on the phone driving, I don't drive dangerously but have been known to forget where I'm going!
I would assume things like eating, etc. that remove ones eyes from the road and hands from the wheel are both more common and more dangerous than being absent...
