Motorists talking on mobile phones while driving are more dangerous than those who are over the legal alcohol limit, according to a report issued yesterday. Tests conducted by the Transport Research Laboratory in Berkshire, England showed that drivers' reaction times were on average 30% slower when talking on a hand-held mobile compared to when they had been drinking alcohol. Tests showed that hands-free mobile phones were also a considerable distraction.
