Washington--AAA's new study points out that most American driver's nod off while driving because of boring cell phone conversations.
The study also pointed out that driving while nodding off is the same as being legal drunk.
"I feel guilty about not using up my minutes every month on my cell phone plan, and I found the best way to use my minutes is when I am driving. It just happens that most of these conversations with friends are so boring that they put me to sleep." Ted Washington told a AAA questioner.
Another person told AAA questioners that the pressures of society just leads to people wanting to talk on their phones while driving, and that this problem won't change until people start to live more interesting lives and have better stories to share.
The government has warned about the dangers of talking while driving, and this latest study has some Democrats in Congress asking for new laws that require people to have better stories to share while talking to people who are driving.
President Obama said he would sign any law passed that just that stop people from sleeping while driving.
