I am sure that statistic is completely false. Most car accidents are caused by people not paying attention to driving. So does that mean that people will be banned from drinking non-alcoholic liquids while driving, listening to music while driving, talking to a passenger while driving... As a matter of fact, lets make it so no one can have any passengers in their cars while they are driving because it is too much of a distraction.

The problem is not cell phones, the problem is when people talk on them, they think their conversation is more important than paying attention to their driving. So don't punish everyone for a few people's mistakes, especially when there are people out there that are better drivers on their cell phones than other drivers would ever be without any distractions.

it's the conversation not the act of holding a cellphone thats the problem. so we should ban other passengers in your car too because you might be tempted to talk to them! lol...

also cancer from phones is likely bunk. the reason that there's messages on smokes is that it is accepted by the community as true, supported by hard data. cell phones and cancer is wishy washy at best.

did you know vitamin E causes lung cancer? im not even kidding google it...

I also agree they should take the radios out the air conditioner out of the cars too so they only thing that people do is drive I wonder if that will bring down car accidents most likely not I know you are being sarcastic But I have heard so many people say that we should ban cellphones out of cars but when does it end you are going down a slippery slop if you do that. My sister always uses her cellphone when she drives and knock on wood she hasn't has an accident at all and she has a three year old daughter with her sometimes.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
