Cell Phone Use

Summary: The use of cell phones of while driving should not be banned. The activity can be dangerous, but the benefits outweigh this. Also, earplugs are available.
Have you ever seen one of those stupid idiots on his cell phone going 85 miles an hour on the freeway, and then have to slam on the brakes to avoid killing someone waiting in traffic. Neither have I but people always say they have seen that happen but I don't think it's true.

My position on the topic, should talking on cell phones while driving be banned. I feel that cell phones should not be banned because maybe someone might need directions to an event, a house or hospital. This is all true but you can also wear an earpiece to avoid driving with one hand.

Cell phone can be dangerous because you lose concentration on driving but they can also save somebody's life. A cell phone can save somebody's life because somebody could report a reckless driver or call for an ambulance. Also if you are contacted by family and they have an urgent message for you, then you can respond. Lastly parents have to talk on phones while driving so they don't have to do it while there with their kids.

On the other hand cell phones are very dangerous because you can lose concentration when picking your phone up off the floor or out of your purse or pocket. Also you need to look for on coming traffic while entering a freeway, but you will not be able to do that if you are in a deep conversation on your cell phone. However, children at school may need to contact their parent because they got a referral from the principle or the teacher. Also a child might need to go home because they feel sick or maybe carpool forgot you. To have a cell phone could be very important in an emergency.

In conclusion cell phones should not be banned while driving. If they would ban cell phones people would have to stop their cars more often to make a call. Stopping will cause more pollution and congestion on the streets and may cause more accidents then before, when cell phones were not banned while driving. Tell your parents to drive safely!
