Now this is simply not enough and more

Now a day’s mobile phones
are a big component within the lives of most people around the world. Tasks such
as making calls, texting, taking snap shots and even browsing the internet has
consumed our lives because it has been made so readily available. The result of
this is that cellphones are being given to kids as young as 4 so that they can
communicate to people and use the phones as they want. With the advancement of this
technology comes the higher risk of people using it in inappropriate ways and
time because they are getting more addicted. For example, since the world has
become so addicted to this technology people have started to use it when they shouldn’t
be causing a very dangerous situation such as when they use it while driving especially
texting while driving. According to statistics the number of lives lost or
injured from people being on their phones while driving is steadily increasing
with time. The action being taken by many countries around the world is they
are starting to ban the use of cell phones while driving. This is meant to
deter people from doing so but according to statistics this is simply not
enough and more has to be done in order to stop these accidents from happening.

            One of the most important reasons that make texting while
driving so highly dangerous is because it reduces the driver’s reaction time so
significantly. Even though both uses of a phone while driving is dangerous,
texting is more dangerous than anything because it requires so much more
attention from your eyes which means the road loses the attention and your car
is driving itself. Furthermore, research has shown that folks who text at the
same time as they drive generally tend to accelerate more slowly after stepping
on their brakes. This can cause possible accidents because of the irregular
movement of the cars. Also for one last example of why texting is much more
dangerous than anything else is that it puts pedestrians in more danger too
because the driver is more focused on their phone than they are the road.

            A large number of injuries whether they are minor or not,
usually arise with just a blink of an eye. Which means that only a moment of
distraction is enough time for a severe street accident. Given the numerous
concerns it would be best if drivers were not only banned from texting but even
banned from using their phones at all while driving unless it is completely
hands and eyes free which would make it have to be voice activated, this needs
to happen everywhere around the world and it needs to be strictly enforced in
order for it to help at all.
