Your right about the concentration as well tho. Test have shown drivers have less awareness when on the phone than if they are over the drink/drive limit.
Then again, worse than both is tiredness. The latest advice being not to drive if tired.
As someone who drives for a living, and who has the occasional bout of insomnia (who doesn't?) I can just see me phoning my boss "Sorry, I can't go to Glasgow today, I'm didn't sleep well last night and I'm feeling tired."
I find Pro-Plus is handy in these situations. It seems to take about 20 minutes to kick in and then lasts a good couple of hours. I know it's not good dosing yourself up with stimulants, but it's probably better for your health than having a tree through your windscreen.
