    Cell phones are the least of our worries when it comes to ignorance. Ignorance was prevalent before cell phones and will be prevalent long after they are gone and if you don't know what I am talking about, just go to Costco on any given Saturday. Saying cell phones make people ignorant is like saying guns kill people. Yeah, they might contribute to ignorance as a whole, but at the end of the day it all boils down to the person responsible for the phone. The people you mention above would still be just as ignorant, whether or not they had a cell phone.

    Excellent article! As a first responder I perhaps have more insight into the dangers electronic devices cause than most. I have attended an increasing number of single vehicle RTAs that occurred on clear, dry days indicating the cause to be excessive speed or driver inattention. Also have noted that a disproportionate number of the drivers are young females. Fortunately, the technology is available to disable these devices once a certain speed is reached. In the interest of safety I sincerely hope this happens soon. Respectfully, Max
