Because your mind is somewhere else.  I mean that in an almost literal
way.  When you're talking on a cell phone your mind isn't in the car
-- it's with the person on the other end of the conversation.  When
you're holding a drink and talking to your buddy in the back seat your
mind is still in the car.
