A Benefit To Driving While Yakking: Bullet Stopping
from the stop-that-bullet dept
Joe Schmoe writes in with a link to a story that shows that there may be some additional benefits to driving while yakking (though, in fairly unique circumstances). In South Africa, a man talking on his mobile phone while driving a truck was attacked by gunmen who shot at him. The bullet ripped through his hand, but was stopped from entering his head by the mobile phone. Next thing you know they'll need to start offering Kevlar-based phones.
