Dangers of Cell Phone use while Driving Submitted for: Tom Wheeler- Chairman Federal Communications Commission Submitted by: Name November 11, 2013 November 11, 2013 Tom Wheeler Federal Communications Commission (FCC) 445 12th Street SW Washington, DC 20554 Dear Mr. Wheeler, As a concerned American citizen, I am worried about the safety of our people on the roads. I believe with the evolution in the cell phone industry, we have become extremely attached to our cell phones that simultaneously run our lives. The cell phone has been great, but there is a problem when it comes to using your phone while on the road. Attached I have written a report with recent statistics from people being in accidents and often occurring in death from this issue. I ask that you and the Federal Communications Commission make a change. I ask that with the support of many Americans, we take the cell phone out of the hands of our drivers. I ask that we create laws that will enforce people who are caught using their phone while driving. We need to create more strict penalties, harsher fines, and make sure that people know this is not OK to act in this way. I ask that we make this change before it is too late. Too many lives are being taken by this simple act. Change must be made. I sincerely thank you for your time in reviewing this issue. Below I have attached my e-mail address as well as my phone number if you would like to get in contact with me. Thank You, Name Contents Abstract………………………………………………………………4 Introduction………………………………………………………....5 Background………………………………………………………....5 Problem………………………………………………………..……6 Discussion………………………………………………………….7-10 * Dependence on Cell Phones * Cell Phone use while Driving * Texting, E-mailing, and Internet use while Driving * What’s being done to fix this? * Problems with the laws
