Bahaya Bertelepon Sambil Berkendara: Handsfree Saja Tidak Cukup

Anda kira yang membuat ngobrol via ponsel sambil mengemudikan kendaraan itu begitu berbahaya adalah karena sebelah tangan anda sibuk menempelkan ponsel di telinga?

Beberapa penelitian menunjukkan bahwa perangkat handsfree tidak membuat percakapan mobile anda lebih aman: mata dan pikiran anda tetap sama tidak awasnya terhadap kondisi lalu lintas serta obyek-obyek di jalan, dan waktu reaksi anda (terutama untuk menginjak rem) tetap lebih lambat. Dua hal ini, kalaupun tidak menyebabkan kecelakaan, turut menyumbang kontribusi pada kemacetan.

Yang paling aman tetaplah meminggirkan dan memberhentikan mobil ke tepi jalan kalau anda harus menjawab telepon penting.

Dan jangan berkilah bahwa anda sudah “terbiasa” atau “terlatih”, karena penyesalan itu biasanya datang terlambat setelah timbul korban.😕

Oh ya, ngobrol langsung dengan penumpang kendaraan sebenarnya juga mengurangi atensi pikiran si pengemudi, tapi itu tidak seberbahaya bicara lewat telepon karena si penumpang masih bisa ikut memperingatkan pengemudi jika ada sesuatu yang berpotensi membahayakan di depan jalan.

The latest research by Carnegie
Mellon University
questions hands-free laws, and whether their existence only gives drivers a
false sense of safety. To test this theory, neuroscientist Marcel Just studied
29 volunteers who used a driving simulator inside an MRI brain scanner. The
volunteers were tasked with driving a car along a virtual winding road, with
and without distractions.
Researchers found that drivers would hit the guardrail and veer out of the
center of the lane more often when they tried to answer true or false
questions. Brain scans of the distracted drivers showed brain activity
decreased in areas that process visual and spatial information, functions that
are crucial for navigation. Once again, this proved that participating in a
conversation is all it took to reduce a driver’s focus on the road.
As reported in This
is London
, Just concluded:
Drivers need to keep
not only their hands on the wheel, they  also have to keep their brains on the
road.
