On September 11, 2001, there were 2,752 people who died in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York. Because of that attack, thousands of soldiers have gone to war costing the U.S. billions of dollars.

Every year, an average of 2,600 people die because of car accidents related to cell phones, nearly the same number of people ever year who died in the terrorist attacks. An additional annual 12,000 serious injuries have also occurred because of talking on the phone while driving.

But what are we doing about this to save lives?

Laws could be passed making cell phone use illegal, but it really should start with personal responsibility.

That’s a lot of cell phone related deaths. I do talk and drive more often than I should. I guess I should work on that.
