Salam to all my dear brothers n sis..
Using mobile phones while driving cars and motorcycles are very dangerous. Still, many motorists still stubborn and keep doing it. Did you know that this habit could kill thousands of lives. 

For example, a study in the United States (U.S.) revealed, they are often car or motorcycle while on the phone or to SMS had an accident that killed them. From 2001 to 2007, the U.S. recorded 16,000 people died because of this bad habit. 

"Our results suggest that rapid growth rates in terms of volume to SMS has led to accidents that killed thousands of lives," wrote Fernando Wilson and Jim Stimpson from the University of North Texas Health Science Center in a report in the American Journal of Public Health. Quoted detiknet from Reuters on Saturday (9/25/2010), Wilson and Stimpson using detailed information on accident-prone roads in every state in the U.S., the number of cellular phone and SMS volume data from the Federal Communications Commission.

They also match with reports from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration about the number of deaths resulting from interference while driving. Wilson reported, from 2001 to 2002, the volume of SMS and phone calls continue to rise. But the SMS show a greater surge. In 2002 alone, 1 million SMS sent each month and this number crept to 110 million in 2008. 

"Since 2001, our research found about 16,000 people were killed and they were associated with increased volume to SMS in the U.S.,"
