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?
Teens are irresponsible because they haven 't fully matured at the age of sixteen. They don 't know how to act responsibly on their own at that age. Minors also don 't take their driving privilege seriously. Most teens don 't have jobs so they won 't be able to pay for their own gas and it would put more stress on the parents. Most teenagers need more practice driving because they don 't
Inexperience is the reason why so many teenagers are part of horrific accidents. Teens have a slower reaction time, do not have an extensive knowledge of the laws of the road, and possess less driving strategies to remove themselves from tough situations. For example, a few months
Finch’s household at first seemed amusing but was proven otherwise. It is slowly revealed that he actually advocates for sexual relationships between children and adults. And that he abused his influence of being a doctor, by manipulating with medication and psychological factors. His unethical ways begins to shine especially in a certain scene when he gives Burrough alcohol and unauthorized medication to help assist in his fake suicide attempt, so he could be taken out of school, which ultimately lead to him dropping out of school. This leads to Burrough not having a solid base of education which makes it harder for him to secure a job in the future.
"The use of cell phones for texting has become one of the most prominent digital distractions in modern society." (Texting Distractions). This shows the negative effects of texting Some laws have been passed against texting and driving but it has not done much to stop people from doing it. Texting is a huge distraction that can lead to car wrecks and other
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.
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
My nephew Michael has been a blessing in our lives since the day he was born. Even though the circumstances were less than happy. My sisters husband died when she was 2 months pregnant with Michael. That day she got a call saying they couldn 't find Mike, her husband, and she needed to get out there.

McKenzie-Grace or Kenzie as her friends and family call her is a far from normal 13 year old girl. Her life was turned upside down on 2/17/16 the night the accident happened. She got a call at 6:21 pm from officer Sam he said “ Hello is this McKenzie-Grace” when she replied “Yes officer” he stated “There has been an accident and your mother has passed away in a car accident and will not be home this evening”. That is when Mckenzie-Grace hung up the phone and broke into tears.
With the next big population after the baby boom, there is many teenagers doing underage drinking. That is already a crime itself, but harming others and yourself adds on to why the punishments should be much ascetic. We need to stop the younger generation before they can create the mistakes that hurt everyone. As the generation is young they have much to look forward to; post secondary paths, jobs, family, etc. When the consequence involves a charge as large as murder, no one wants that on their permanent record as it affects their future ability to retain jobs or enter certain programs in the future.

Glaring at your phone for a split second or flipping through your music playlist may seem harmless in contrast to drinking and driving. Drunken driving is treated as a serious criminal offence, and carries a strong social stigma. Until we reach the point where using digital devices while driving is just as unacceptable as drunken driving, new laws will not be tough enough, or taken seriously. The issue that many drivers face is distracted driving laws are not always heavily enforced as policer officers have a hard time trying prove that the accused was on their digital device.
