Assignment Three: Research and Writing Page 2 Introduction Imagine you are waiting on your loved one to get home after a long day of work, school or they just ran to the store to get some eggs. The next thing you know there is a knock at your door and it the sheriff’s office asking if you’re the wife, husband or parent of that loved one you were waiting on. When you answer “yes, I am” they tell you the horrible news. Your loved one has been killed in a single car accident and the cause of the accident seems to be due to the fact that they were driving and became distracted as they ran off the road they hit a tree head on.

With all the distractions that are on the road now and days there should be a standard regulation on the use of cell phones while driving. It would help save lives and prevent accidents involving drivers that were distracted.
