Within the past decade, cell phones have become an integral part of our everyday lives. Many teenagers have a hard time comprehending what life was like for people before cell phones. While cellphones have made life more convenient for many, countless others have suffered tragedy as a result of distracted drivers causing devastating car accidents because of cell phone use.
With more and more studies showing a connection between cell phones, distracted drivers and increases in car accidents, many states are taking action by making it illegal to place phone calls or send text messages while driving. Cell phones and driving simply do not mix.
Taking eyes off of the road to make a call, send a text or read an e-mail — even for a few seconds — can lead to rear-end collisions, head-on crashes and other types of motor vehicle accidents. The consequences of distracted driving can be catastrophic or even prove fatal.
