Driving while conversing on a cell phone diverts attention from your first responsibility: safely maneuvering a ton or more of rolling metal.

The US Department of Transportation reports that cell phone usage during driving is one of the contributors to accidents caused due to inattentive driving apart from eating, talking and applying make-up.
A study in Thursdays New England Journal of Medicine reveals that the risk of having a traffic accident due to a cell phone is the same as that while driving drunk.

A study by Dr. Donald Redelmeier and Robert Tibshirani from Toronto say that the risk of cell phone driving is similar to the hazard associated with driving with a blood alcohol level at a legal limit.

One should ensure safety and not indulge in such hazardous activities and i think one should always take their automobiles for regular checkups so that if there is any technical problems then they can be immediately brought to the notice of the owner and can be mended and so i think we all should support the initiative like Castrol Safe 2 Go http://www.facebook.com/CastrolSafe2Go
