    Gauging your cellphone distraction game

    I was .34 seconds slower to react and missed 10% more gates.

    Also, whoever designed that roadway system needs to be shot. No wonder they have toll booths with only one open lane every 200 yards - there's no traffic!

    The secret is to just put it on auto-pilot and plow through the gates - It was simpler and it's not my car.

    I came up with a score BETTER than yours: I was only .15 seconds slower while texting, and missed 0% more gates

    Not a good example of texting and driving. I will be steering with my hand, not pushing a computer keyboard number pad at last second, to determine direction. And typing it a lot harder with a mouse cursor than a QWERTY keyboard.

    Yeah, it's nonsense as a "texting simulator" That's why I threw it in here.

    That said, how has Charlie been practicing?

    Agreed, plus I will have my blackberry in front of me not to my side.
    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!
