Using cell phones while driving should be banned. First, car accidents occur because of using cell phones while driving. For example, according to http://www.edgarsnyder.com/car-accident/cell-phone/statistics.html, 25% of car accidents occur because of cell phones. This shows using cell phone in cars distracts people to drive. Because of this many people die for no reason.
This habit has increased for the past 10 years due to the enlargement of technology. Due to this problem people get killed or severally hurt, you don’t know it but you’re hurting yourself and others. Another bad thing about texting or talking on the phone while driving is that you can get pulled over and get a ticket. Driving while texting or talking can be a bad example for others or your kids because by you doing they probably think that they can to so it can be dangerous. There are also many under age drivers on the road that makes driving on the road more dangerous for them and anyone driving that day.
Primarily, utilizing a cellular phone while driving has been the root cause of many vehicular injuries and deaths. A large number of drivers have not received proper driver training in the first place. They tend to drive too fast for conditions, follow other cars too closely and generally make poor lane change decisions. With the added distraction of cellular texts, it is a recipe that has proven to be cause of many accidents and fatalities in many cases. By removing human input for vehicle operation, folks can talk and text all they want.
16 year olds are also proven to get into numerous accidents and they can get distracted at the wheel. 16 year olds get into the most car collisions; they even at times cause deaths. Usually their own life tragically and sometimes their friends or a complete stranger sometimes. These kids are too young they are a bit naive. If a friend asked them to race there is a 50/50 chance that they would say yes and that is extremely dangerous.
Texting and driving has caused many deaths over the world so think twice before doing it. If you text and drive it causes accidents which leads to deaths. Many accidents caused by texting drivers have also caused the death of many innocent people over the past years. These drivers are just minding their business driving along the way when the text-er comes along and ruin’s everything
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a few examples of aggressive driving are “changing lanes improperly, tailgating, speeding, and passing when not allowed” (NHTSA, 1). “Aggressive driving can potentially turn into road rage, which is violent behavior, such as assault or murder, stemming from a traffic dispute” (Road Wars, 16-17). According to psychologist Arnold Nerenberg, there are four major causes of road rage. “The most common is feeling endangered by someone else's driving--for example, when another driver cuts you off or follows too closely. Others are resentment at being forced to slow down, righteous indignation at someone who breaks traffic rules or steals your parking space and--perhaps the most dangerous, because it opens the door to an escalating exchange of hostilities--anger at another driver who takes his own road rage out on you” (Adler, 29-36).
Approximately 1.4 million accidents occur during phone conversations and two hundred thousand from texting.3 Texting drivers may be as impaired as a driver who is legally drunk. Laws should be changed or enacted to prevent senseless accidents, and unnecessary deaths. About five thousand people die annually texting while driving.3 Three-hundred thousand people are hospitalized for injuries obtained from accidents cause by phone use in the vehicle.4 Again no state in the U.S. completely bans all cellular phone use in the vehicle for all age groups.1 Without firm, enforced laws or probations regarding phone use in vehicles this issue will continue to grow worse. 1. 2012, Texting And Distracted Driving Infograaphic, retrieved on 2014, January 27, from:
Distracted driving has become an increasingly immense problem on our nation’s roadways as cell phones have become more common in our day-to-day lives. Cell phone use while driving is the No. 1 distraction behind the wheel. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that in 2010, driver distraction was the cause of over 18 percent of all fatal crashes with 3,092 deaths, and crashes resulting in injury with 416,000 people (FCC). According to the National Safety Council, 23 percent of all crashes each year involve cell phone use, resulting in 1.3 million crashes nationally (FCC).
There are many ways to be distracted while driving; the most common distraction is cell phone use. Cell phone use is the most dangerous distraction because it involves all three of the different types of distractions. That being said, physically looking down at your phone will create even more danger to those around you. Things like eating, smoking, and talking to the passenger can be considered distractive driving. Death is a common fear that most humans have.
Because speeding is one of the reasons why the death rate is increasing, the government put radars in most streets. This decreased car accidents. Another cause of car accidents is drivers' distraction. Whenever a person is driving, the driver has to put all of his/her attention in it. Talking on the phone, or with the passengers in the car, or being on the use of drugs...etc, all leads to deadly car accidents.
