Should Cell Phones Be Banned While Driving?
Chase, Age 13, Easton, CT

In my opinion, I think cell phones should be banned while driving. There are many reasons why I think this. First off, cell phones should be banned because it causes many distractions. Another reason I think they should be banned is because over 4,699 accidents are caused by people who drive with cell phones. My final reason is it can waste your minutes on the cell phone.

Cell phones can cause many distractions while behind the wheel. For example, you can get lost because you are paying attention to the call you are getting from your boss and, not the road. This wouldn’t happen if you weren’t talking on the cell phone. Cell phones can also be a distraction if you are not paying attention to how fast you are going you might go over the speed limit and get a ticket from the police man. Not only are you getting a ticket from a police officer you have to pay for the it, too. You could also go through a red light because you are on a business call. Therefore I think cell phones make many distractions while behind the wheel.

There are a lot of accidents due to people on their cell phones while driving. For example, say you are driving and you hit someone because you were on your cell phone. Then that leads to people suing each other. Back in the day when I was young, my mom got hit by a person. The person was on his cell phone and backed up into my mom all do to the cause of the cell phone. An additional reason cell phones are bad is they can cause your own death by getting in an accident. Say you total your own car because you crashed while on your cell phone. Not only did you total your car you have to pay for it, too. In conclusion cell phones can cause many problems as well as a lot of money.

When you are in the car with a cell phone you can waste a lot of your minutes. When you are in car you are bored you are more likely to waste your minutes. If you were minutes you might need to call someone for important information. In conclusion cell phones can cost you a lot of money while driving.

In conclusion I believe cell phones should be banned. It causes many accidents and distraction while driving. Cell phones also cause a lot of money. This all wouldn’t happen if cell phones were banned while driving.
