This short video clip demonstrates clearly and simply the dangers posed by driver distraction, caused by just a few seconds use of a laptop while driving.

Subject is driving a car in the Project54 driving simulator. He then takes his eyes off the road and one hand off the wheel to quickly type something on a laptop. As he does this, the car in front of him brakes. When he looks back it’s too late to stop without hitting the car in front of him. The clip is off YouTube of course, and we think it’s from the guys at ECE.
