Fun and sobering test how mobile phone usage distracts car drivers.
Take the Department for Transport driving challenge which assesses your observational skills based on a car journey.

Thanks, I was having a lot of trouble driving that car.  I figured I was just too distracted!

I also missed 8 questions. She had so many coming (like any woman  :)), I wasn't really attentive at what she was saying, just tried to guess when she had a question from her tone.

And I had 1 point extra...

That's why I NEVER speak on a phone when I'm driving (not even handsfree).

Thanks for this, it is really instructive.

And another disturbing factor was that the steering wheel is on the right side, but we have it on the left side.  :D
