Calling While Driving Is a Psychic Condition

Using a mobile phone while driving turns out to be a symptom of a psychic disorder. A constant need to have the mobile phone at hand, even while driving, signifies the state of increased anxiety.

The scientists from the University of Arkansas believe that people, who use mobile phones on the road, suffer from an obsessive-compulsive disorder rather than from the addiction to mobile phones. The experts from the Sam M. Valton College of Business studied the behavior of 451 volunteers. Finally, they came to the conclusion that the desire to use mobile phones is caused by the response to the high level of stress and anxiety.

In the case of obsessive-compulsive disorders, the patients suffer from obsessive scary thoughts called obsessions. People try to get rid of the anxiety caused by these thoughts by means of performing obtrusive and tiring actions known as compulsions.

It is not us who should decide what makes people call while driving: obsessions and compulsions, or boredom and urgent needs, but we’d like to ask all the readers of not to use mobile phones while driving!
