Avoid using mobile phone while driving‏

Mobile phones have become so common these days that people can't live if they don't have one. The first thing which most of the people do in the morning is to see their mobile phones for any new sms or missed calls. People are becoming more addicted to it. It is indeed that mobile phones have made life much easier but using it while driving isn't a good habit.

Drivers who use a mobile phone, whether hand-held or hands-free are much less aware of what’s happening on the road around them. They usually fail to see road signs. They fail to maintain proper lane position and react more slowly and take longer to brake. They are frustrated and feel more stressed.They are also four times more likely to crash, injuring or killing themselves and/or other people.

Most of the people think that using hands-free while driving would be much less riskier than directly talking on the phone. They are unaware of the fact that using a hands-free phone while driving does not significantly reduce the risks because the problems are caused mainly by the mental distraction and divided attention of taking part in a phone conversation at the same time as driving.

Please becareful and avoid using your cell-phones while driving as much as you can.
