I'm not convinced that we actually "know" that cell phone talking diminishes driving ability the same as alcohol. I've read a lot of cell phone studies, and have yet to see one that I feel tells us much that's useful, or that talking on a phone is more dangerous than talking to your passenger. In fact, I read one just this week which talked about people being unsafe, and noted that reaction time increased 20%...but following distance increased 30%. In my mind, that shows that people on cell phones (unlike those under the influence of alcohol) realize there's a limitation.It would be interesting to research EMS types against the general public. We know in the community that talking on the cell phone diminishes driving ability just like alcohol does, due to inattention. EMS folk are inveterate multi-taskers. Do they do better in the same environment? I don't know, but I wish I did.
