Using a cell phone while driving increases the driver’s risk of causing a crash. There are many options available in the market like a phone mount. You may think an easy-to-reach phone mount keeps you safe from distraction while driving, but taking your eyes off the road for even two seconds can make you more likely to be involved in an accident. Simply glancing down to see the next turn on your navigation app could create a problem.
