I wonder if we should be thinking of banning pilots using radio in aeroplanes?

In Canberra the taxis all have a text based radio system and they are constantly pressing buttons on them and reading the results.  How safe is that then?

Yeah and maps too.  Maps and street directories are even more dangerous.  They should be banned from cars completely.  Even touching a street directory while driving should be an offence.  

I wonder how many car accidents are really caused by all this stuff.  Are we seeing a sudden surge in city car accidents?
