Cellphones more dangerous than drunk driving

Some findings which might be surprising:

* Talking on a cellphone is just as dangerous as drunk driving
* Texting is _more_ dangerous than drunk driving
* Hands-free phones aren't any better, because the problem with phones isn't that they tie up your hands, it's that they tie up your _mind_

But even though cellphone-driving is just as dangerous as drunk driving, it's not illegal everywhere, and where it is illegal, the fines aren't nearly as steep as they are for driving drunk.
