The question: Why do we do it when we know it's wrong?

Here in today's NY Times Mark Richtel poses this question: Why do we use our phones while we drive, when we know we are driving less safely as a result? Is there a double standard? Do we imagine that it's stupid and criminal for others but okay for us?
