The brain's processing ability can be put to the test at any time when you are driving. Talking on the phone will lead you to fail that test when it comes. Light changes, rain starts, kid darts into street, someone blows horn, you hear a clunk under your car and wonder if you hit something or if the car needs a repair, there is a siren in the distance, you have to turn left here, the sun is glaring, there is a sign warning of a flagman ahead. Now what is your brain going to miss out of all that information at once? Now what one or two things will you actually notice if you're in the middle of some sexy talk on the phone, or finding out that you just lost your shirt in the stock market via detailed text message?
