Cell phones have become such a huge part of peoples’ lives. When once a cell phone could only make calls, it seems like cell phones can do almost anything that can be done on a computer. Cell phones can make calls, send and receive emails and text messages, surf the web, help the driver navigate and much more. As the abilities of our cell phones increase, people have been using their phones while they drive at an alarming rate. When people use their cell phones while driving, it puts everyone in danger. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving, including and especially cell phone use, is 6 times more dangerous than those who drive under the influence.
