Should cell phone use in cars be banned?
There has been a lot of debate over the use of cell phones by drivers in a moving vehicle. This debate started after investigations into many road accidents found out that a substantial number of accidents resulted from the driver being distracted due to the usage of mobile devices. So, I think that yes cell phones in cars should banned, because being on the phone takes away from reflexes, say if you have to brake really fast. If you're concentrating on what the person on the phone is saying, you won't react as fast if someone cuts you off, or if a kid runs out in front of your car. Also, every week tens of people die because they are talking on the cell when they should have their full attention on the road.
I have story that happened to my dad. Last year my dad had a real close call. A motorist sped past a stop sign and nearly rammed right into his car. He could literally see the horror on motorist face as he slammed on the brakes, just missing him by couple inches. He supposed the whole episode had scared motorist and it should, he needed awake up call. My dad was lucky that nothing happened, had a collision occurred he would have hit the driver's side straight on. Statically, dad would not have walked away from that accident unharmed or in one piece for that matter. What was the man’s reason for his carelessness? Yep, he was too busy on his cell phone to pay any attention to a simple thing like a road sign. Apparently, this kind of thing happens all the time, but what really angers me is that people just don't get it.
At base, using a cell phone while driving has been proven to be more dangerous than not doing so. For this reason, law enforcement needs to start treating it under the existing dangerous driving legislation, ideally with a severe punishment available to courts. By doing this, you are combating the real problem, as Police will be able to use their discretion in the unlikely event that they encounter someone using a phone safely. It will also make it clear that using a phone while driving is dangerous, rather than a new law which would be taken by some as an infringement on their liberties. However, each driver should keep a cell phone in the vehicle in case of an emergency or to alert authorities on hazardous road conditions. Whenever possible, drivers should pull off the road safely before making that emergency call.
So my point is to show you how is really dangerous to be on the phone while driving. And I think they should have some strong law about phones while driving or we will have crashes continue to happen, the impact will be far-reaching. Many will continue to be seriously injured or killed, lives will be disrupted, and court and insurance costs will increase. Since this is a legitimate health and safety issue, municipal and state governments should act. If a person has no more regard for other drivers' safety than some of these "texting addicts" do, then maybe the only way for them to hang up the phone is to criminalize their reckless disregard.
