Here’s a cool online simulator of texting while driving. It requires you to navigate toll gates (of the type you see on a toll road) while answering a text message and avoiding pedestrians. It comes with a disclaimer that you should never text and drive, no matter how well you score.
At the risk of sounding sociopathic, I wonder why texting and driving can’t be an acquired skill.
In July 2009 a new computer AAA Foundation released a new computer program designed to help Baby Boomers retrain their brains and delay the impact of aging. Developed byPositScience, DriveSharp claims that using it 20 minutes a day 3+ times a week will:
- Increase your useful field of view by 200%—see more in your peripheral vision
- React faster to dangers—stop 22 feet sooner when traveling at 55 mph
- Drive with greater confidence at night, in traffic, and in new places
- Cut your risk of a car crash in half
The brain is capable of miraculous things. Why not texting and driving?
