Driver Distractions

One cannot help but wonder if the "Cell Phone Craze" contributes to what appears to be an increased number of mishaps. I see so many people with these gadgets glued to their ears while driving. What are they talking about??? IMO driving requires your utmost attention and shouldn't be taken for granted as I feel a significant number of folks do!!!
