Multi-tasking? Try the test

The NewYorkTimes Online has a terrific "test" that you can take to see why texting while driving is such a bad idea (as if you couldn't figure that out).
But since so many people can't seem to figure that out ---- and so many others are lured by the ching of the blackberry or cellphone saying there's a message, and they'll just peek --- I'm glad the NYT did this.
Its almost shocking how quickly you deteriorate with this little test.  Scary, really.  And this is what's happening when otherwise responsible drivers start looking at the cellphone rather than you and me who are sharing the road with them.
Try it yourself.
