at a time in an effort to promote more efficiency and cater to the demands
of a culture that is always on the go.

efficiency and productivity. In fact, recent research conducted by psychologists suggests
that only 2%of people can successfully multitask. What does this shocking statistic mean for drivers sharing the roads throughout
