Banning cell phones in cars: Is the use of cell-phones while driving a public hazard?

  • Yes it definitely is a public hazard.

    Driving an automobile already requires an immense amount of concentration and attention. While undergoing auto education, there's a specific section in the curriculum that focuses on auto accidents due to distractions while driving. They list loud music, conversations, food, and most importantly cell phones. They detract a significant amount of attention from driving, and with their fast-growing list of applications, cell phones have become increasingly hard to navigate without full attention. This simply spells danger in an already dangerous situation.

  • Pay attention to the road

    People who use their cellphones and drive are not only a danger to themselves but also to everyone else on the road with them. People that use their cell phones are not focused on driving and as a result can turn into oncoming traffic or not apply the breaks in time. Even while using hand free headsets the drivers attention is still not on driving.
