Why are cell phones and cars dangerous together?
Plenty of states currently have cell phone laws in place. Still, some drivers think that texting or talking on the phone is perfectly harmless. The facts state otherwise, however. Drivers who text while behind the wheel are 23 times more likely to experience an incident related to being distracted, and studies have found that the average time a driver takes his or her eyes off of the road to text is 4 seconds, which, can be extremely dangerous, especially if one is driving fast or in a high-traffic area. There are countless stories of people being seriously injured and even killed after texting while driving and getting into an accident, and many states have introduced legislation that limits talking on the phone to hands-free devices, in order to keep drivers’ hands on the wheel. Cell phones and driving don’t mix — your likelihood of being in an accident is significantly higher when using one.
