Are you annoyed with Drivers that focus more on their CELL PHONES than ON THE ROAD? Do you think that Drivers should recieve STIFFER Penalties when cell phone usage results in injury/ fatality? Unfortunately ONE text message/phone call can be the difference between Life & Death. Many people, including Law Enforcement, continue to violate the Cell Phone laws on a daily basis. Below are several statistics about "Driver Distractions" and the effect that it has on others. After reading the entirety of the facts listed below, YOU be the Judge.
The United States Department of Transportation notes that cell phones are involved in 1.6 million auto crashes each year that cause a half million injuries and take 6,000 lives.
According to FocusDriven®, up to 80% of all crashes involve some form of driver distraction.
During any point of the day, 11% of drivers are talking on their cell phones, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
A study from the University of Utah indicated that the reaction time of a teen driver using a cell phone is the same as that of a 70-year-old driver who is not using a cell phone.
According to the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, texting while driving is six times more likely to cause an auto crash than driving when intoxicated.
The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute installed cameras on dashboards inside truck cabs. From the video footage, on average it took five seconds with their eyes off the road when driver's experienced distractions. The distance covered in five seconds of driving at 55 mph is equivalent to the length of a football field.

Shackles an affront to 'dignity and decorum' of court, appeals panel rules
By MAURA DOLANcontact the reporter
An appeals court Tuesday struck down a policy of routinely handcuffing and shackling pretrial detainees appearing before judges in the San Diego-based federal court district.
A three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said the Southern California district has not adequately justified its policy, adopted by the district judges in 2013 on the recommendation of the U.S. Marshals Service. The restraints include leg shackles and handcuffs linked to a belly band by a 15-inch chain.

The whole debacle of Undertaker sneakily tapping out before hittingLesnar with a low blow was confusing at the time, but as it sinks in, there could be method in the madness. It will no doubt set up a decisive meeting between the three, something which wouldn't have been as appealing had Lesnar won the second straight bout.
Elsewhere, WWE world heavyweight champion Seth Rollins had another productive night at the office. Thanks to the help of Jon Stewart, another man to add to the list of his allies, he escaped with not only his world title but the United States Championship, too.
What's perhaps most interesting here is not so much Rollins vs. Cena(as that will certainly continue into Night of Champions), but what The Authority and Rollins do with the U.S. Title.
