The Two Big Effects on of Cell Phones on Teens

Satisfactory Essays
Study shows that Over 50% of all drivers between the ages of 18 and 24 are texting while driving. If only these young drivers understood that texting or calling causes their reaction time to become slower than an 70 year old person. There are too many accidents that happen ever year due to distracted teen drivers. Whether there looking off the road or most likely occupied on there cell phone. But to most teenagers there cell phones are everything to them and it becomes there center of attention like the sun in our solar system. The feelings you get when on your cell phone makes you feel so in charge like a CEO of an powerful organization or a silver back alpha male gorilla. Sadly teens like myself are so involved into there phones we will ignore someone who is physically in front of us for someone virtually on our cell phones. Slowly it’s turning us into rude illiterate unsocial people in the real physical world. Cell phones are causing teens to lose there sense of writing skills from the lazy short misspelled words that becomes a huge habit. These dangerous results from abusive cell phone use will only become worse if we don't realize we are turning into Neanderthals on and off the road. But then again we must also take charge for our on actions, so can we take charge and help how that friend abuses there cell phone use or can we even handle our own cell phone
