Drivers demonstrates comparatively slower braking responses and also had low awareness of other traffic flowing through the roads ignoring their presence concentrating more on cell phones and less on roads as how other drivers are behaving. Different studies have reported hundreds of deaths during a year because of using cell phones during driving.
Because of diversion in attention drivers reacts slowly to the traffic signals, missing them at times. Decision making during driving is a critical factor giving drivers fraction of a second to make a swift decision about a given complex scenario. Studies have highlighted those drivers using cell phones react slowly and often make wrong decision causing serious accidents involving other vehicles also. (Gravelle, 2005)
Mobile phone has only played positive role in my life. I still remember how I collected notes from my friends just a day before my exams using mobile phone
Apart from studies, it helps in communicating with your friends and family. The best thing I love about cell phones is that its quickly becoming all in one solution to our most needs. We don’t need a watch, alarm, calculator, PC, camera, torch and what not. The future is going to be more amazing with lot of advancements in cell phone market.
Yeah agree! same here. In my perspective every thing has two side advantage and disadvantage same mobile phone but it has more advantage than disadvantage. Because it has more positive implications on our daily routine. Example by using windows mobile phone we can able to use it’s performance as computer and do all our task so easily without big machinery ( Computer) . So we can say mobile phone has playing crucial rule in our daily routine and without using it we would get back from our works.
onnection has long served as a potent sign of power. In the era before cell phones, popular culture served up presidents, tin-pot dictators, and crime bosses who were never far from a prominently placed row of phones, demonstrating their importance at the hub of a vast nexus. Similarly, superheroes always owned special communications devices: Batman had the Batphone, Dick Tracy his wrist-phone, Maxwell Smart his shoe spy phone. (In the Flash comics of the 1940s, the hero simply outraces phone calls as they are made, avoiding altogether the need for special communication devices.) To be able to talk to anyone, at any time, without the mediator of the human messenger and without the messenger’s attendant delays, is a thoroughly modern triumph of human engineering.
More than ninety percent of cell phone users also report that owning a cell phone makes them feel safer. The CTIA noted that in 2001, nearly 156,000 wireless emergency service calls were made every day — about 108 calls per minute. Technological Good Samaritans place calls to emergency personnel when they see traffic accidents or crimes-in-progress; individuals use their cell phones to call for assistance when a car breaks down or plans go awry. The safety rationale carries a particular poignancy after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. On that day, many men and women used cell phones to speak their final words to family and loved ones. Passengers on hijacked airplanes called wives and husbands; rescue workers on the ground phoned in to report their whereabouts. As land lines in New York and Washington, D.C., became clogged, many of us made or received frantic phone calls on cell phones — to reassure others that we were safe or to make sure that our friends and family were accounted for. Many people who had never considered owning a cell phone bought one after September 11th. If the cultural image we had of the earliest cell phones was of a technology glamorously deployed by the elite, then the image of cell phones today has to include people using them for this final act of communication, as well as terrorists who used cell phones as detonators in the bombing of trains in Madrid.
Knowing that a child has a mobile phone puts the parents at ease because they can call them in case of any change in daily plans, emergency instructions, and the like.

As for me, I will like to state categorically that cell phones pros and cons depends on individuals involved. One either uses it to benefit him or to his detriment. But I believe the advantages out ways the disadvantages. However, I will like to ask if anyone could enlighten me more on the effect (negative) of the cell phone on students’ performances in their final year exam.
