A: Summary of “Distracted Driving Killing More American Teens”.
In fall 2008 Ryan Didone was with four of his friends, when he hit a tree with his car. He died at the hospital as 15 years old.

I don’t think that there exists a specifically solution in relation to this problem – if so not yet - however I’m convinced that there eventually has to be something, that can mitigate the side effects caused by distracting driving. I believe that we as individualists are capable of doing or making something that can lead us to a solution. Wayne Irving, developer of computer software producer, is the one who has created SMS Replier, which is – in my opinion – a very effective way to keep drivers from getting distracted while driving. The phone sends a message, informing callers, that the person is busy driving and cannot answer. More than 10 000 people have signed, to show support for his case.
