Voice-To-Texting While Driving Is Just As Bad As Texting
So says a new study, which explores the difference between people who text and drive and others who voice-text and drive.
Turns out both groups are nuts!
Just because you're dictating your text doesn't make you any less distracted from the driving tasks you're supposed to be concentrating on.
In fact, voice-texting can be worse than finger-texting in some cases because of the infernal need to correct everything you say. Simply voice texting "Have dinner ready when I get home" can take an hour and a half when it keeps showing up as "Win big dinner rolls when you get laid."
So stick to driving, people. Maybe put on the radio at the most. But don't talk to it!
