Telecommunication industry is the world's fastest growing industry with more than 5.3 billion mobile subscribers (that's 77 percent of the world population) around the globe. This significant rise in use of cellular phone leads to increase in road accidents due to use of cell phone while driving. Every year nearly 1.4 million people have been killed because of wireless customers and their over-bearing cell phones.
