A Big Issue
Each year, too many lives are needlessly lost or devastated in cell phone accidents. The numbers illustrate the breadth and depth of this problem where words fail.
- The crash rate associated with texting while driving is six times that of drunk driving.
- Distracted driving, which includes cell phone usage, claims approximately 6,000 lives and causes half a million injuries every year.
- Twenty percent of adults talk or text on the phone while driving.
Although far from harmless, cell phone usage behind the wheel is still not prohibited in many states, and the ones which do prohibit talking and/or texting while driving do so with a slap on the wrist. Clearly, there needs to be some changes. Perhaps an increase in civil claims against drivers who cause cell phone accidents can work towards discouraging this behavior.
