Banning handheld phone use by drivers had NO effect on accident rate - study

"But you don't operate a radio while driving. You turn it on when you get into the car and turn if off when you get out."

Sadly, while that should be the way things are (and it certainly works for me), the reality is probably that people don't like this song, so tune to another radio station, or don't want to listen to this CD again, so fumble around ejecting that one and finding another - all while driving.

(Yes, a CD player is not a radio, but Mr Average Joe may very well call that thing in his car a radio even if he doesn't use the radio function - although stereo is more likely).
