About 90% of American citizens own and operate a cell phone. The land line phone is on the decline and most Americans are now getting all their needs through their phone.
And with the phone comes the responsibility. Smartphone theft is on the rise and people are losing their lives over this. The companies and software developers are working to prevent this from happening. They are creating freeware and anti-theft tools to keep track of a stolen phone.
States are passing stricter laws that fine, vehicle operators who are on the road while on the phone.
I admit that I often do a lot of texting on the phone while operating a vehicle. That is extremely dangerous.
Many Americans lost their lives on the highways because of a five second text or a phone conversation.
You don't get an opportunity to avoid a hazard when you're arguing with a friend or family member.
You crash into a vehicle. Either you kill someone or you're the one!
We all must use common sense when using a cellphone!
