Distracted driving is a leading cause to automobile fatalities. Distracted driving can range from talking, texting…to eating, and drinking…. This topic has been a debate issue between several experts and U.S. citizens. The Experts have different point of views. One of the experts feels that integrated devices will solve the issue. The second expert feels that law enforcement focus only on texting and driving but there are other driving distractions.
