Once all the Car companies decide to make hands-free bluetooth cell phone technology a mainstay in every car released onto the market the amount of deaths related to the subject will drastically be reduced. It's already an option in almost every car on the market these days. They just have to take the initiative to put it in every car at no extra cost. I know blue-tooth technology isn't that expensive anymore so it is definitely possible.
As smart as technology is today there is no reason why a connection between phone and car can not have the same ease of use as talking to somebody sitting in your car along with you. Using your phone and driving shouldn't even be an option that is on the table. It's unsafe for everyone around you and simply shouldn't be done.
Yes, it's imperative that cell phone related car accidents be reduced, and it can be done. But it will require passage of stricter laws. Every state should ban cell phone calling and texting while driving. It's a very distracting practice. Drivers need to concentrate on the job at hand to stay safe and keep those around them safe. With stricter laws, we can have fewer accidents.
These accidents can be reduced but people have to agree that using a cell phone while driving is bad and that we have to stip doing it. The only way that we will be able to stop these accidents is through PSA's and by teaching teenagers safe driving habits and to put the cells phone away.
