While you are driving and you hear a vibration from your phone, what do you do? If you are like most you will take it out and look at it. If you do this, you are putting not only yourself at risk but others to. It can cause you to swerve into the other lane and potentially hit oncoming traffic. Or even swerve into a ditch and hit a beam or go into a deep creek.
The general argument made by Matt Richtel in his work, “Driving While Distracted” is that use of cellphones should be banned while in cars. More specifically Ritchel argues that using cellphones in cars can lead to injury, death, and overall danger. He writes “Studies indicate that drivers using cellphones are four times as likely to cause a crash as other drivers” (11). Richtel is suggesting how dangerous the use of these devices can actually be. Cellphone use can magnify the the potential hazards of being in a car to a great extent.
Driving is apart of most teens, and adults lives for many years. There are many exciting moments from getting a license to cramming as many friends in into a car (Zermike 6-7).

The exchange of money between two consenting adults should not be a crime. If both parties agree on the amount of money and the activity they are preforming, there should be no problem.

There should be no other parties involved.

Should The Government Banned Texting While Driving? Although Police cannot determine if the driver is texting while driving, and bans are becoming more effective, texting while driving should be banned because transportation cell phone systems are being installed into cars, apps are being made to stop teens from texting, and people are stopping the inappropriate use of mobile devices.
