The article that I picked is called “Cell phones and Driving” and it was from the Insurance Information Institute Web site http://www.iii.org/media/hottopics/insurance/cellphones/ .The article is very helpful for my paper. The article has a lot of facts that help show how much the cell phone affects humans while driving. It has many facts on talking on the phone and also how especially dangerous it is to text while driving. Here are some of the reasons why talking or texting when driving is a bad habit. First the driver is taking his eyes of the road for 10 seconds to dial the phone number. Second is that “people can become so absorbed in their conversations that their ability to concentrate on the act of driving is severely impaired, jeopardizing the safety of vehicle occupants and pedestrians.” There are many different facts for accidents and the number of people that uses cell phones. They is also some history from 2006 and information on different laws. Some information that caught my attention for the article was a survey that was released in August 2009. It showed that 82% of people are in favor of having a ban on talking on the phone well driving as well as the fact that 80% said that they would change their cell phone talking habits while driving. Another major fact is the numbers of crashes that involved drivers that were talking or texting on cell phones. In January, 2010 the National safety council (NSC) released a report that estimates that there are at least 1.6 million crashes, or about 28% of all crashes are caused by drivers distracted by cell phone use -talking on the cell phone, 1.4 million crash’s were while talking and 200,000 done while texting. It also pointed out that many businesses now prohibit their employees from using phones while driving as well, afraid that they could be sued as well if an employee has an accident while driving and talking on company time.
