The coming era of driver-less vehicles promises a bright future full of safety and ease, yet this is not currently an obtainable goal. Widespread use of autonomous vehicles proves to introduce more negative effects than the promised positive. They won 't make the roads any safer, for they are more likely to misread their surroundings. There are major risks in taking control away from human drivers, and current technology is not yet up to the task. Self-driving cars should be banned in the state of Pennsylvania because they are not as safe as vehicles operated by humans, they put jobs and businesses at risk of being lost, they can 't make ethical decisions, and they use unreliable and unsecured technology.
The choice is up to you, please choose wisely. I believe that cell phones should be banned while driving because the majority of car crashes are caused by reckless drivers who are distracted by their phones and pay no attention the the road that is ahead of them. Everyday, at least one person will have an accident because they are not paying attention to the road that is ahead of them. It is not safe for a driver to have any distractions
When driving a vehicle, one is supposed to be diligent and not be distracted to assess the condition of the road. With the widespread use of cellular devices, aka phones and texting, there has been an increase in unnecessary accidents and deaths associated with drivers being distracted by texting while driving. Since common sense is apparently not enough for people to abstain texting while driving, I believe the act should be illegal for the good of the country. One major reason is that when one is distracted by texting while driving, there can be the chance to cause the accident and have loss of life, including the drivers. Another reason, if less important, is if life is not lost in a vehicular accident, there will be some type of damage, whether vehicular or property damage, and that will
FINES + COINS INSERTED - COST OF ENFORCEMENT SYSTEM Another example of traffic offense is speeding .By enforcing a legal maximum on the speed one can reduce the deaths and injuries caused by speeding of the vehicles. This would cause inconvenience to many as 1. Additional time spent in travelling 2.Additonal fuel consumption 3. Pleasure and 4.diversion of economic activity due to slowing of traffic. Hence important to balance and work put an optimal level of speed which would minimise cost and reduce accidents .Tullock pointed out that no one has performed these calculations due to the unwillingness to put a value on deaths and injuries as to be compared to the material costs of delay.
The technology isn’t safe To start off, the technology used in those cars creates serious safety problems. Huge improvements must be made before the can safely handle streets. Take, for instance, the case of driverless cars rely primarily on pre-programmed information about routes. In addition, they wouldn’t obey a short term direction, they could get lose for that.

Since the early 2000 's, cell phone related car crashes have increased in number. Talking, texting, or merely glancing at a cell phone while being behind the wheel is a dangerous distraction while going 70, 50, or even 20 miles per hour. This is why I think that driving while using a handheld cellphone should be illegal. Talking on a cellphone is just as dangerous as texing, though some motorists would disagree, saying that talking on a cellphone is not as dangerous as texting, but they are very wrong. When a driver is concentrating on a conversation, they pay less attention to what is going on around them in favor of the voice in their ear.
It 's just as dangerous leaving a person 's dog unattended in a car and ends in the same result as if you were to leave your child unattended a car. Not having seat belts on school buses is another example of something that is legal but should not be. Schools have small children on buses and can be just as dangerous as a small car. Buses can easily tip over when the driver is going to fast or turning too sharply and the bus could tip over and cause harm to the children. Buses can easily wreck like any other car and need to have more safety regulations.
We have all heard that texting and driving is bad, but can having a conversation be just as bad or even worse? While driving, the brain needs almost full focus in order to drive safely since there are many actions happening at once. When a person talks or texts on a phone, it is taking away focus the brain needs to drive safely, which can lead to a fatal car accident. Over one-million car accidents a year are said to be caused by cell phone distractions. Are cell phones the real problem, or is it just the driver?
Distracted driving is any activity that could divert a person’s attention away from the primary task of driving ("Facts and Statistics"). Being distracted while driving doesn’t just affect you but it affects your passengers and the drivers in other vehicles as well. Every day many people are distracted when driving and don’t even know it. You may change the radio station, call someone on the phone, or send a text message to a friend. All of these are distractions even though they may not seem like it.
In today’s world everyone has something that they are thinking about that takes all of their thinking process. So by being distracted they forget simple things like their safety and the safety of others. Some things they forget are turn signals, speed regulation, proper yielding and forgetting where they are supposed to drive. By speeding you are giving yourself less time to react if something were to happen on the road ahead of you. So if something does happen then you have to slam on your brakes and if that happens to be in an intersection then you are putting yourself at risk to be hit if somebody else is distracted.
