Correct answer is:
  • (B)  False
According to the report “Understanding the Distracted Brain” by the National Safety Council, most drivers incorrectly believe that talking on hands-free phones is safer than talking on hand-held cell phones.Using a hands-free cell phone is considered an escape from the risk of driver distraction because it eliminates visual, auditory, and manual distractions. However, it does not eliminate cognitive distractions. This type of distraction involves taking one’s mind off the road and is the cause of thousands of car accidents per year.
