Slow Down and Put the Phone Down to Prevent Car Accidents
Rapidly developing new technology is supposed to improve and simplify our lives; however, in many cases we find that the new devices only serve to complicate our lives, and in many cases, possibly do more harm than good.
Cell phones are so common place that virtually everyone, including young children own one, and uses it as their primary source of communication. While this is a great advantage as a way to stay in touch with our loved ones as we go about our day, or as we are traveling; if not used properly, cell phone usage can result in a tragic outcome.
Avoid Phone Usage While Driving
A good motto to abide by while driving, even if it’s a few blocks away is “slow down and put the phone down.” Disciplining ourselves to do this would save thousands of lives every year. There are even phone apps available that automatically respond to incoming phone calls, and/or text messages that state, “Driving, I’ll get back to you when I can safely reply.”
Many states are taking legislative action to ban the use of cell phones while driving, and as accidents caused by the use of cell phones increases across the U.S., other states will undoubtedly take action to impose serious fines and penalties on drivers that fail to slow down and put the down phone.
