It's pretty obvious that there are instances when all of our concentration needs to be focused on the task at hand (the SUV next to you starts pulling into your lane) and times when the task at hand is not demanding at all (stopped at a red light)

I'm pretty sure than Johan is not going to radio Lance when he is in the middle of a hairpin turn or going 70 MPH down hill. At the same time the guy next to you in the car is not going to philosphise about existentialism while you weave in and out of midtown traffic. The problem is that someone on the other end of a cell phone has no idea whether you should be spending more concentration on driving/riding or talking.

That's why I think cell phones are distracting.
