Cellphones — blessing or curse?
from By Bennett Cromer
Americans love the convenience and the sense of security cellphones give us. But many people believe this useful device has become a curse in the hands of inconsiderate users and distracted drivers. According to a study sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distractions are a factor in nearly 80 percent of crashes and 65 percent of near-crashes. Dialing hand-held devices and talking on or listening to a hand-held device are second and third on the list of top 10 causes of vehicle crashes, after drowsiness.
