Driving with your smartphone is convenient, but it's not safe. According to National Safety Counsel’s statistics, cell phone use while driving causes 1.6 million crashes each year, or 1 in every 4 accidents. People increase their likelihood of being in an accident by 400 ~ 1000% when using their smartphones while driving.
So, it looks like we have to pick either safety or convenience. Or do we?
