Dangers of Using a Cellphone While Driving

Almost everyone has a cellphone these days. They are a wonderfully conveniently way to keep up with modern life and communicate with people while on the move. However, the problem is they are extremely dangerous to use while driving. Legislation intended to minimize or eliminate the use of cellphones while driving is popping up throughout the nation. Legislators and drivers alike are coming to realize that cellphone use while driving greatly increases the risk of car accidents.

Consider the following statistics released from the National Safety Council:

  • An estimated 1 in 4 car accidents involve cell phone use
  • 60-70% of drivers report using a cell phone “at least sometimes” while driving
  • 58% of drivers between the ages of 17 and 29 regularly read texts while driving
  • Drivers using cell phones look but fail to see an estimated 50% of their driving environment
