And they will hurt and kill allot more people on our roads. Everyone is doing it and it's a major distraction while driving.

Why do people on this forum alway assume? Where did it say anything about a cell phone, except maybe one was used to call 911 so emergency personal could get there quicker.

I agree that it didn't say anything about cell phones here. People AWAYS say this when there is an accident, I can't seem to understand why though. Honestly, unless you're in heavy traffic or trying to back out of a parking spot, I really don't see how they're such a distraction. I mean, how is this any different than talking to a passenger in your car.

Is it possible that people ASSuME the cell phone is causing bad drivers to drive badly simply because there IS so many people using them? Think about it......."Someone just cut me off, AND I noticed they were on their cell phone...those cell phones are dangerous!". Of course, 1/2 of the drivers on the road (most of whom were NOT in an accident) were also talking on their cell phones...so can we REALLY be sure it was the phone, and not a BAD driver who happened to be on the phone at the time???? I agree that some people can't walk and chew gum at the same time, and don't have enough sense to put the phone down during tricky manuvers, but I think phone or not, there's just a lot of bad drivers out there.

I mean, really, I could just as easily get into an accident and say "The Freakin driver was distracted talking to their passenger, I know this because there was a passenger in the car at the time of the accident", but you never hear that, do you???? hmmmmm. Maybe there's just SOOO many people using phones these days, and if someone happens to be using one when they get into an accident, everyone assumes this is the cause. THINK ABOUT IT.

Since we're on the subject, did you ever think about all the accidents that are AVOIDED because of cell phones? That's right. Ever been driving in an unfamiliar area and called someone to ask them where to go? What lane you should be in? If you're on the right track or made a wrong turn? How about people not being in a hurry to get somewhere because they can simply call to say they're running late? How about calling your co-workers (still at work) to tell them to be careful at intersection XYZ, or "traffic's all backed up on 390, tell everyone to find a different route". Ever consider that people now have to do less driving around in general because they can simply call each other if they're trying to make plans? I could probably cite several other examples of how cell phones may actually PREVENT a lot of accidents. THINK ABOUT IT.

For the record, I, myself, have a hands-free headset and ALWAYS use it while driving. I just get really sick of everyone assuming
