Actually, according to the study I am guessing they also don't recommend talking to a passenger as well. The study found that talking to a passenger was even more distracting than operating your cell phone.

I am in the process of taking a driving class....and that is considered a distraction.
The radio was considered a distraction. Or maybe it was load music.
If passengers arent supposed to talk to the bus driver while they are driving...I would say yea it is a distraction.
IMO anything thats takes your focus away from the road is a distraction.

Sneezing while driving is also very dangerous and apparently irresponsible.

bluetooth, hands free, speech-to-text capabilities are all self-justifiable... its the mind that needs to focus on the road - not on the phone/person on the receiving end.
