Many groups have done research on the subject like The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society which determined that, “Cell phone distraction causes 2,600 deaths and 330,000 injuries in the United States every year.”
In addition, in a 2007 survey done by Nationwide Mutual Insurance they recorded that, “73 percent of drivers talk on cell phones while driving.” That poses a real danger to everyone on the roads given the previous statistics.
We, the undersigned, call on the Minnesota State Legislature to pass a law banning the use of cell phones while operating vehicles for all ages.
The Ban the use of cell phones while operating a vehicle petition to Minnesota was written by Nick Peterson and is in the category Cars at GoPetition.
