Texting while driving need to be stopped.Is it really important to stay connected during the duration of our days?
According to Ian Mulgrew, a journalist from Canada, most accidents are cause on distraction while driving which were contributed by the usage of cell phone.
Many drivers nowadays are having such demanding lives and never get enough time to finish them all in one day.
Thus, the driver’s sort out the dilemma by doing it on the road while driving. There are numerous law created to prevent distracted driving from happening, still, the acts did nothing to stop it.

“Replying to your
friends or family text is
not nearly as
important as your life or
someone else”

No matter how old or young they are, driving while texting should not be under circumstances be performed on the road.
Using cell phone while driving will not only harms the pedestrians but the passenger you are carrying.
One reason why many people are against texting while driving is the number of car accidents it contributed yearly. While driving, people such as adult and teenagers are finding it hard to resist picking up their cellphone and send text to one and another.
The vibration and the ringing tone only contributed the urge to check the notification while driving.
As soon as the driver’s eye are in contact with the phone, their focus are shifted away from the roads.
According to a research done in 2009, 5 474 lives were lost while 448 000 people suffered injuries from car accidents related to being distracted by driving.
Car crashes are 4 times more likely to occur while the driver is using their phone over any other causes. Most people does not realize the severity of being careless while driving.
According to Bret Schulte, talking on cell phone is not as dangerous as texting these days.
While talking on the phone, it is easier to keep your eyes on the road, but when drivers start engaging text sending that is a different story.
Mainly because it is not possible to look in both directions simultaneously, in which the focus are drawn directly to the phone screens.
It’s difficult for all drivers, especially teenagers, to put down the cell phone and both their hands on the steering wheel, which may results in many car crashes.
Even with the majority people are backing up the law on the banning texting while driving.
Many people feel that staying connected to the outside world is much more beneficial that focusing on the road ahead, although it isn’t.
It can however, harms other pedestrian and other drivers who are doing nothing than reaching their destinations.
If people are serious about the causes of driving while texting, less vehicle accidents would happen every year and the roads would a safer place.
Drivers that compromised their focus on the phone instead on the road need to know the position they put others in as well as themselves.

While driving behind a wheel drivers should never remove themselves from the front view of the road.
