During this period of time, the driver’s attention is focused in the conversation. Because this decreases the driver’s skills to react in time to possible dangers on the road, a person using his cell phone and driving at the same time might not be able to avoid colliding with the car in front that used their brakes to avoid a pot-hole or an animal crossing the road. One possible solution to this dilemma is a newly formed law forbidding the use of cell phones while driving. The best way to educate drivers on the severity of this issue is to raise awareness on the danger of cell phone use while driving. However, cell phone’s aren’t the only outside factor influencing poor driving habits.
Cell Phones are a Distraction Distractions while driving take the operator’s attention away from the road. This poses a serious risk to the driver, vehicle occupants, pedestrians, property, and more. Distractions, like using a cell phone while driving can be fatal. Several states have enforced driving laws that restrict and prohibit using the device while driving. Driving requires ones attention at all times and when using a phone the operator is not paying attention to the road but to the screen to read a text, send a message, or to end/ receive a call.

I agree with this quote completely.
Danger is a Call Away Distracted driving is a major cause of automobile accidents. Cell phones play a heavy role in this increasing issue, but there are many other activities that pull one’s attention away from driving. In definition, distracted driving is an action in which one takes their focus away from driving. In most cases it’s cell phone use, but common things like makeup, shaving, and eating are forms of distracted driving. In order to understand what distracted driving is and how to prevent it, one must know the causes and effects, but more importantly the prevention of this reoccurring issue.
Texting While Driving Many accidents are blamed on distracted driving and most of the distractions are caused by cell phone usage. However, some opponents feel that creating a law against cell phone use infringes their personal rights. Others think that banning someone from using their cell phone is equivalent to telling someone that they can’t adjust their radio or talk to someone else in their car.

The chances of getting hit by a car when jaywalking is very high, as the driver does not expect the pedestrian to cross the street where there is no traffic light. Jaywalking is dangerous for both the pedestrian and the driver; the driver may lose control of the car when trying to avoid hitting the pedestrian, while the car may hit the pedestrian. Secondly, is the long wait for the traffic light to change a valid reason to jaywalk? I think not.
