Re: Proposed Illinois Legislation Would Ban Amateur Radio Mobile
said by fifty nine:Well, that really isn't correct. The greatest portion of distraction is caused by looking at the phone to dial it, answer it, end a call, look at a contacts list, etc. It tends to remove your concentration from the roadway and surroundings and place it on the handset. There is something to be said about the conversation itself, but I would have to say its a stretch to try and delineate the difference between a half and full-duplex conversation.
The biggest danger in using a cellphone is distraction. Distraction comes from being engrossed in the conversation not from holding the device.
