Consumed Collisions

Crystal B


In an era completely consumed with technology and social media, reckless and distracted driving is at an all time high. Infact, At least 1 in 4 of all car collisions involves phone use. In order to solve this very real problem, cell phone usage needs to be decreased when driving a car. I think that an app limiting cell phone applications when in the car would be very beneficial. The app would be alerted when you start your engine and then would restrict all social media and messenger applications from being used until your car is turned off completely. If this were to be put into effect I think that car crashes would significantly decrease.


This writing piece offers a solution to the very real problem of reckless and distracted driving. With a new era consumed by technology and social media, a forward thinking strategy is needed to decrease driving related fatalities.
