Loosing someone in road accident can be really disastrous and to mitigate the ratio of such accidents that are purely caused by distraction based on using cellphones while driving US Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is up to impose federal ban on in-car cellphone’s usage, during driving of course.
As making or listening to calls cause delays in run-time decisions that are required in a complicated task like driving, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 3000 accidents last year were due to such distractions. The reason why LaHood wants cops “to write tickets when people are foolishly thinking they can drive safely or use a cell phone and text and drive.”
38 out of 50 states of the US already have legislation at play that prohibits cellphone usage while driving. The new legislation would discourage overall inattentive driving habits of people including hands-free and voice commanding technology which is becoming more and more common these days.
