write an article on Hands-Free Cell Phones on the Road.
Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Hands-Free Cell Phones on the Road. It needs to be at least 1250 words. The point is that if hand-held cell phone use is an obvious kind of a driver’s distraction on a road, hands-free phones seem to be less harmful and distracting. As far as such a usage of a phone lets a driver do all the required driving actions, technically there is no point to forbid the hands-free cell phones while driving. Despite the seeming security of such phone usage, we usually deal with human cognitive functions while driving, so it turns out that is capable of doing automatic actions while driving isn’t quite enough. Thus, the issue should be considered from cognitive psychologists’ point of view in order to understand whether human cognitive activities like memory, attention, reasoning and problem-solving can normally deal with talking on a phone (even the hands-free one) while driving.
The process of driving requires complex simultaneous usage of human cognitive functions. A person needs to be concentrated on road aware of other participants of the traffic. also, the vehicle driving skills should be involved, so the person needs to remember what to do in different situations on the road and react quickly. The most important cognitive function that should be working during driving is problem-solving capability, as far as people deal with human factors of other people on the road. Problem-solving is a process that works by switching the two kinds of thinking (analytical and intuitive) one after another when it is needed. Because, dealing with other people, a person often needs either to analyze further actions or act according to intuition, more spontaneously. Cognitive psychologists claim that most intellectual errors that people make happen because of the clash of two different systems of thinking (Leron&Hazzan 2009). Thus, if a person is not distracted during driving, both analytical and .intuitive thinking work cooperatively providing a driver with a very high level of problem-solving capability, full attention, and involving into driving process. If to add speaking on a phone to the problem-solving process while driving, it could definitely cause a huge cognitive disorder. The reason is that speaking on a phone is a process of analytical thinking (because a person is supposed to listen and response) when driving is both analytical and intuitive process. .
