Current scientific research on cell phone use shows that talking on the phone has adverse impacts on driving, especially when the driver is faced with unexpected situations.<br />Secondly, texting and dialling while driving can cause motorists to take their eyes off the road.<br />Even a few seconds of inattention can cause an accident. For example, the car in front may brake suddenly or a car might appear unexpectedly out of a side street or driveway resulting in a greater chance of a mishap. <br />Thirdly, talking on a phone is distracting as it endangers your life and others around you. For instance, talking and listening require concentration, particularly if you are thinking about what you are going to say next. Between 2003 and 2008, there were 482 injury crashes and 25 fatal crashes attributed to the use of mobile phones.<br />Driving needs total attention! Talking or texting on a cell phone obstructs that concentration. For the safety of yourself and others around you, there has to be a cell phone ban while operating a vehicle.<br />
