Was This Research Necessary?

Not only are they obnoxious in supermarkets, cell phone users also tie up traffic.

“It’s a bit like breaking wind in the elevator. Everyone suffers,” Peter Martin of the University of Utah’s Traffic Lab said in a telephone interview.
Prior studies have equated the risk of driving while talking on a cell phone with driving while drunk. Some 50 countries have banned use of hand-held phones while driving.
The latest study shows the impact of cell phone use on traffic patterns. “It has to do with the reaction to changes in speed,” said Martin, who teaches civil and environmental engineering.

Some things are just intuitively obvious.

Ban these evil devil-tools, I say! Ban them!
