Cell Phones Cause Accidents

The main message to all of us who are tempted to use our cell phones while driving is that we need to avoid any activity that may serve as a distraction while driving. It only takes a second when we are distracted to take our eyes off of the road or to not have our full attention on the road and cause an accident that may or may not be foreseeable.

If we have our undivided attention on the road, it does not mean that we are completely absolved from the possibility of an accident. It does mean that the chances go down significantly that we will be in a car accident. Nobody wants to be in an accident where there are serious injuries. None of us want to live with the fact that we may have been the cause of such an unfortunate event and that the accident could have been avoided if we had just been paying attention on the road.

Just as the laws that require us to wear seat belts, the laws against using a cell phone while driving are meant to protect us. These laws are especially vital in light of the fact that motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death in the United States.
