Other TIGHTENED CELL PHONE REGULATIONS TO SAVE LIVES Tightened Cell Phone Regulations to Save Lives Tanicka Heiskell Prof. Holly Sprinkle ENG 215 11/06/2016 Tightened Cell Phone Regulations to save lives What’s distracting our drivers? Did you know that in 2014 3,179 people were killed because they were distracted and 431,000 were injured? In addition did you know that a person’s eyes are off the road for an average of five seconds while driving going 55mph, this is enough time to cover the length of a football field blindfolded (2009,VTTI). The cost of being distracted has a high cost to pay and most people do not realize that cost until it is too late. It is important now more than ever to educate those who get behind the wheel of a vehicle. As cell phone usage continues to increase now in my opinion is the best time to make adjustments to our current regulations to ensure a better standard of safety for people of all walks of life. History & Status Cell phones were first introduced to the mark in the mid- 1980’s. (2000, Lissy). As of right now currently 46 states have placed a ban on text messaging while driving. It’s interesting to read that no state has issued a ban on cell phone usage for all drivers. The usage of cellphone usage only continues to grow because it is the popular trend. More and more people prefer to use cell phones and they keep them with them constantly. This is an issue because if a person has available access to something they will more than likely use what they have access to. Many people may say that the benefits of being able to access a cell phone at any given time outweigh the benefits of cell phone usage bands. I think people who have been effected by the risks of texting and driving would think differently. There stories can be found on www.textinganddrivingsafety.com. This website included stories of families who lost family members who was only 5months old and the majority of the ones who lost their life were teens. Does anyone else see this as being an issue? Because the lack of enforced laws and regulations being enforced people are losing their lives before time. The Issues Highlighted The biggest issue is that none of the states have any restriction on cell phone usage while driving and while the majority of states do have strict laws regarding texting while driving they aren’t being enforced because it harder to detect. Meaning how can a police officer see if a person is texting and driving it they don’t have the phone up in a viewable area? How can we get all the states on the same page concerning setting and enforcing a set of regulations for everyone to follow. The point of view is that people’s lives could be at stake. The fist problem is that there is no regulation on cell phone usage by any state at this time. In a report ten percent of all drivers between the ages of 15 to 19 years old were involved in fatal crashes because they were distracted (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration NHTSA). Could this percentage have been lowered if regulations were in place and enforced? There are clearly regulations regarding texting and driving because 48 states already have something in place and recorded. I think this needs to be standard for both texting and driving and cell phone usage while driving. Because there is a disconnect in what a person can do or can’t do depending if that person is using a cellphone to make a call or using the cellphone to text the lines and rules are blurred. A standard regulation for each should be set. The second problem is growth of cell phone usage. At the current trend it is safe to say that cell phone usage and ownership will only increase. As facts presented the purpose of cell phone usage has increased from 40% to 61% and this was in the 90’s (1999, Cain and Burris). So the usage of cell phone ownership will not decrease but increase over time. Not have regulations in place to limit the use of cell phone usage and or texting while driving will began to effect more people because more people are using cellphone now. The cost of not getting head of this problem now could result in more lives being put at risk. The last problem is the fact that people are getting involved with motor vehicle collisions that are fatal. The incidents range from minor injuries, to having to fix your car to a person having fatal injuries (2000, Lissy). The ultimate cost is the loss of a life, on the other hand both sides can have lasting effects on a single act that can’t be taken back. In addition to using a cell phone while driving a driver can be distracted by the use of a radio and or having a difficult conversation with someone while on the phone and driving. It’s not just the use of the cell phone that can cause an accident it’s also other factors that surround the use of the cell phone. For example using the cell phone can cause a person to have delayed reaction time. There are tasks that result to slow reaction time they include but aren’t limited to dialing a number, picking up a phone that was dropped, having an intense conversation while on the phone. (2000, Lissy). If there were standard regulations in place that were enforced then it would cut down on the amount of vehicle collisions due to cell phone usage of any kind while driving. Conclusion The reasons explained above is the key reason why a standard set of rules should be set and followed to limit the use of cell phone usage while driving. I understand the importance of having access to cell phones in emergency situation but the use of cell phone usage while driving or texting while driving has the possibility of being irresponsible, not only to your life but the life of others. I think we should value our lives and the lives of others by limiting the use of cell phones while driving. There are many benefits that could be pointed out for reason to have cell phones and I am sure that with the way that technology is progressing now cell phones could have restrictions placed on them that notice when a car is in motion that certain functions like texting and lengthy cell phone calls aren’t allowed. The best solution to the issue of cell phone usage and texting while driving is first set regulations that limit it’s use and then get the cell phone companies to create a product that will limit when a cell phone can be used depending on the motion of a vehicle. In addition many newer cars today have advance systems where you just talk instead of using your hands to use the phone. References Lissy, K. (2000, July).
