Teens are distracted all the time when they drive. They could be distracted by their phone, friends, family, or food. In my opinion, the biggest distraction is their cellphones. I know it won’t be easy to prevent these distractions, but I got an idea that could solve the cellphone problem. Cellphone companies or the companies that make the cellphones need to set something up that would automatically put the cellphones in a mode that won’t let teens or anybody use them. They won’t be able to text anyone, go on social media, or play any game. The only time it can be used if there is an emergency, you can click a emergency button that would only call 911. I know that there is something similar to this for texting only but not for other features on their phones.
