Manual Transmissions in an Automatic World By: Trevor Bunting

Many people use their cell phones while driving. This behavior is dangerous and causes numerous accidents every year.
Though there are laws banning texting and driving, they are only effective on a small scale, because the law is difficult to enforce.

Manuals keep the driver from using his or her phone...

and ultimately makes his or her focus more on driving.

Because of the difficulty of using a cell phone while driving a manual, less people will be on their phone while driving one.
If more young drivers are required to learn to drive a manual before receiving their license, more will want to drive a manual for their first vehicle. The increase of manuals on the road will cause a decrease in overall cell phone use while driving.
