Why Can't We Disconnect?

"The perfect storm of attentional problems...the worst situation to be in":  That's how one brain researcher describes texting while driving.  The last time our blog covered the subject, more than 100 of you logged on to say that it's a bad idea.

But it doesn't take a brain expert, a blog, or a bucket full of statistics to tell you that it's dangerous to text while operating heavy equipment.  So why do you think that people still do it?  Why can't we disconnect, even if it's only for long enough to get from A to B?
