Distracted Driving on the Brain

David Strayer, professor of cognitive neuroscience, University of Utah, dives into the mind of distracted drivers and says while part of the brain makes people believe they are capable of multitasking behind the wheel, nearly everyone is not. He explains how new vehicles today are developed with too much integration and dispels the debate whether hands-free or hand-held devices are safer on the road.
