The cellphone generation is more likely to text and drive.
The Governors Highway Safety Association is using the state of Connecticut's laws against texting while driving as a model for other states to follow in combating distracted driving.
Just recently the cell phone celebrated its 40th anniversary since the first mobile phone call was made back in 1973. The phone weighed 2.5 pounds and was extremely big and cumbersome in comparison to today's cell phones. Back then there was no such thing as texting and driving but in today's society it is alarming at how many people, including New Haven residents, use their cell phone while driving.
The world has become increasingly interconnected through the use of cellphones, social media sites and broader access to the Internet. Unfortunately, this has also led to an increased danger of accidents on the roads, as more drivers are distracted by their mobile devices. According to many experts, this is just another example of the law's failure to keep up with modern technologies.
