Using a hands-free mobile phone while driving is as dangerous as calling on a hand-held device, researchers have claimed.
The findings, based on trials during which volunteers “drove” simulators, showed that any phone call makes drivers four times more likely to crash.
It has led to demands for a ban on all phone calls while driving, including with hands-free systems.
