In 2011, %23 of vehicle crashes were while using a cell phone. That would make that 1.3 million accidents. If you are on your phone for about five seconds going 55 mph, it would be the length of a whole football field. There's no need to ever pull your phone out while driving. If you're with a passenger, have them answer your phone. And if you're alone, and it's really that important, pull over and answer. Don't destroy your life, or anyone else's because you make a terrible decision.
