Cell phone use while driving - don't do it
In British Columbia where I live it is illegal to use a cell phone while driving. We also have very strict laws on alcohol consumption. Unfortunately, the cell phone law is not well in-forced by our local police although the drinking driving laws are vigorously in-forced . Consequently BC now has more accidents where cell phones are a factor than accidents where drinking is a factor. More fatalities too.
Many factors cause accidents. Some are very difficult to eliminate. Cell phone usage is a definite distraction and any distraction makes driving more dangerous.
