In today’s world, cell phones play a central part in the lives of many people around the world. Tasks such as making calls, texting, taking photos and even surfing the Internet have not only been made easier but have also been made more possible for many more people. As a result, cell phone subscriptions continue to increase globally, As people continue to depend on cell phones for their communication needs, these devices not only become more useful but also more dangerous, especially when used at inappropriate times. One of the most dangerous ways to use cell phones is to text while driving. The available statistics sadly indicate that the number of the people who are engaged in accidents or even lose their lives because of texting while driving is on the increase. This can either mean that people do not really know the kind of danger that they place themselves in when they decide to text while driving or that they actually know the dangers but have chosen to ignore the warnings. The action of many countries around the world to ban the use of cell phones while driving may have served to deter drivers from using their phones as they drive, but the increased number of causalities clearly demonstrates that there is still a lot more that needs to be done.
