He or she would witness drivers eating, engaging with their radio, on their cell phone, or whatever it may be to distract them from the road. However, one of the main things a person would notice about other drivers is that cell phones are the main distraction. Using cell phones while driving means that a person could be texting or dialing on a cell phone, listening or taking to a cell phone, or even playing games on a cell phone. In the article “Cell Phones and Distracted Driving: Selected Research” the author states that “Distracted driving is a behavior dangerous to drivers, passengers, and non-occupants alike… Of those people killed in distraction-affected crashes, 408 occurred in crashes in which at least one of the drivers was using a cell phone (13% of fatalities in distraction-affected crashes) at the time of the crash (Houghton). Houghton is saying that 13% of fatalities in distraction affected crashes the driver was distracted by the use of a cell phone.
The results showed that indeed the words at the semantic level of processing were remembered the best and the words of the structural level were memorized poorly. Nonetheless, it could be argued that the semantic level of processing would be different for all individuals depending on their background and life experiences, as perhaps some words are understood more widely than others. It also depends on the language used to present the words and if the language was the first, second or possibly even the third language of the
You see them everywhere, a person who is on their phone while walking. To anyone, they may seem harmless, but by using their technology while walking, they put themselves and others on the road in harm 's way. Texting while walking has become a serious problem.

Amnesic patients performed more poorly than control subjects on the transfer tests. Importantly, they were impaired on the same test questions that were indicated by independent raters to be the most indirect and to require the most flexible use of task knowledge. These findings show that declarative and non-declarative memory differs with respect to the flexibility of the knowledge acquired by each system. Declarative knowledge is accessible to multiple response systems. Non-declarative memory is more encapsulated and has less access to systems not involved in the initial
In the viewpoint of perceptual load theory, stimulus differences happen when the stimulus has high or low perceptual load. The perceptual load discusses complications of the physical stimuli, especially the distractor stimuli, for example, a right-angled symbol surrounded by a rounded symbol is when there is a perceptual load which is low and when there is a right-angled symbol enclosed by heaps of dissimilar symbols this is high perceptual load. Because of the supposed inadequate volume of noticeable materials, in high perceptual loaded studies the aim of noticeable materials is worn out earlier thus enabling to react to the goal quicker in contrast to a lower loaded perceptual
