Cell Phone Texting Bans While Driving

 


Cell phone texting is at the center of controversy while legislature works on banning it and studies say banning it does not work. 

 

Why Ban Cell Phone Texting While Driving?

Where is Cell Phone Texting Banned while Driving?

 

Cell phone use has been banned in many countries unless the device is supported hand free.  Researchers worry that it is not the hand use but the cognitive energy required to use the phone that causes the increased risk of an accident.  To make sure that people texting on their cell phones don’t get through a loop hole because they are not actually talking on their phones, many countries are pushing legislature through banning cell phone texting.
