Individuals who use their cell phones while driving are more likely to be an accident than those that don't. Further, if an individual is texting while driving, the likelihood for an accident is exponentially increased.
Countless avoidable accidents are caused each year by distracted drivers focusing on other events, instead of focusing on driving safely on the road. It is unfortunate that this occurs, and many injuries and deaths are caused by cell phone use while driving.
The use of hands free devices reduces the changes for an accident, but the act of talking to someone else while driving poses distractions of its own.
