Anything can be distracting.

Anything can be distracting. We can't manage the whole world! Apart from in-car discussions, squabbling kids in the back seat and the radio, there's also the factor of distraction caused by unrelated stress and internal thoughts which also compete for brain-time.

The moral has to be for the DRIVER to be aware of all of these factors and make sure that if they become excessive, he/she stops driving until they resolve. We can't ask Ms Nanny State to manage all these things for them and quite frankly even isolating the driver in a little box would not work as you can't isolate the driver from their internal thoughts.......
