Gauging Your Distraction

Gauging Your Distraction is an online New York Times game by Gabriel Dance, Tom Jackson and Aron Pilhofer that tests how well you mutitask by having you change lanes while driving and texting.

According to the authors: "New studies show that drivers overestimate their ability to multitask behind the wheel. This game measures how your reaction time is affected by external distractions. Regardless of your results, experts say, you should not attempt to text when driving."

Except for me, apparently. See results above.
