Talk then Drive

More and more data show the danger of chatting on the phone while driving, but it's a hard societal habit to break. It's convenient, and the danger isn't immediately apparent.

Yet society has moved beyond other convenient behaviors in the past. Spitting on the street was once common, as was relieving oneself on the side of a building. That still happens here and there, but it's not generally seen on every block each day.

In many areas, public bathrooms reduce trouble on the street. Would more frequent rest-stops or cell-phone side-lots encourage people to talk, then drive?
