It is easy to become distracted while driving when you have your phone in the car. Whether it is on your lap or in the cup holder, we can’t help but to look at a notification when our phones buzz. I believe that many people would prefer to not be on there cell phones while they are driving, but once they receive a text or a call they don’t have enough self-control to not read their phone, or worse, reply. But, if car companies began to silence phones whenever they connect to the bluetooth for the car, I believe that this would help to prevent many accidents and deaths. With doing this, anyone driving a newer car with bluetooth would not be tempted to looking at their phone because they wouldn’t know that there would be any notifications.
