Media Files for Distracted Driving 2018
Multitasking is a myth. Human brains do not perform two tasks at the same time. Instead, the brain handles tasks sequentially, switching between one task and another. Brains can juggle tasks very rapidly, which leads us to erroneously believe we are doing two tasks at the same time. In reality, the brain is switching attention between tasks - performing only one task at a time. For this reason, starting in July 2014, texting while driving has officially been outlawed in New Mexico.
