  19. 19. Publish on one PowerPoint Slide<br />I believe that drivers should be banned from using cell phones while driving. <br />Drivers not having both hands on the wheel could cause them to be slow in reacting in an emergency. Research on cell phones show that talking on the phone when driving is dangerous especially if something happens. <br />Texting and dialling while driving could cause drivers to take their eyes off the road. An accident could easily happen. The car in front may brake suddenly or a car might appear out of a driveway. <br />Talking on a phone is distracting and dangerous for others. Between 2003 and 2008, there were 482 injury crashes and 25 fatal crashes because of mobile phones. Driving needs total attention! Talking or texting on a cell phone stops that concentration. For you to be a safe driver cell phones should be banned.<br />Ban cell phones from cars<br />
  20. 20. Newspaper Report<br />Copy your story and paste into<br />http://www.fodey.com/generators/newspaper/snippet.aspclick on the Generate button and paste code into your blog or wiki<br />Should Drivers of cars be banned from using cell phones?<br />Drivers should be banned from the dangerous practice of using cell phones while driving. <br />Firstly, people in charge of cars should have both hands on the wheel; if they have one hand grasping a cell phone then consequently their reaction times tend to be slower. 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 />
