Everyone is so busy trying to keep up with everyone else that we find it hard to put our phones down. Young and old alike, people in all walks of life are addicted to their cell phone and find it increasingly hard to put it down. Some spend their time talking to family, some spend time scrolling through social media and other are taking pictures and sharing them with friends – there is so much you can do from your phone. It would be great if every once in a while, we could “unplug” and enjoy what is going on around us, be we also realize that time is limited, and phones have become a crutch to staying ahead and keeping up.
The problem is that more and more people continue to spend more and more time on their phones. They will not put them down and focus on what is right in front of them including driving. Not putting your phone down is rude, but it is also very dangerous.
You can tell someone over and over that they should not use their phones while driving, but some just don’t care. Have you ever been stopped at a stoplight and looked around? Sure, you have. And we are sure you have seen someone playing with their phone while they are behind the wheel. If you are stuck behind them it can be very frustrating because they are more focused on their phone than driving. You cannot move ahead until they go, or they are moving and looking at their phone which is dangerous. It only takes a split-second for an accident to happen when someone is looking down and their eyes are off the road. Doing that is more than enough time for an accident to happen and for it to be deadly.
