They also say that talking on the cell phone while driving is just the same as having a conversation with a passenger in their car and that the government will not ban people from having passengers in their cars so why should they ban talking on cell phones while driving.
Enthusiasts for banning the use of cell phones in public places argue that excess use of mobiles results in negative impacts on people and even catastrophic ones . . People usually get distracted and become less attentive to hazards surrounding them when calling someone or answering someone’s call because most of their focus and concentration is paid to the call . A stark example supporting that plea is the toll death and injuries afflicting the society everyday as a result of the careless use of mobiles in streets , while crossing high ways and even while driving over highways . In spite of the strength of this argument ,these negative impacts can be eliminated if sophisticated illuminating campaigns are to be launched to enhance people’s awareness concerning the potential risks of using cell phones in public places .
I think driving while using cell phones should be banned because of the many car accidents they are causing, it is causing ones insurance to rise, and it is causing concerns to people health issues.
