The National Safety Council (NSC) recently announced that 1.6 million car wrecks per year are caused by drivers using cell phones or sending text messages while driving. The NSC reported that this number amounts to 28% of all car wrecks. The NSC has called for a ban on cell phone use and texting while driving to reduce the number of car crashes. The NSC reports that cell phone use causes more crashes than testing, due to the larger number of people who use phones while driving. However, the NSC notes that texting is more of a distraction and thus a larger risk for causing crashes. The NSC hopes that state and local governments will recognize the danger posed by texting as well as cell phone use, and take appropriate action to protect all drivers on the road.
