SPOTLIGHT!

According to the WHO, "Injuries suffered in traffic accidents are the 9th leading cause of death worldwide and the leading cause of death of young people. The 2008 report found that over one million die and another 20 million are injured in vehicular accidents every year. Modern technology has served to make driving both safer and more dangerous, at once. Automobiles are outfitted with improved lighting and visibility, air bags and the like to better protect passengers. At the same time, the increased use of cell phones while driving — even hands-off devices — has proven to seriously increase the likelihood of accidents".
