Compulsory ban of using mobile phones while driving

General Purpose: The general aim of this speech is to advocate for regulations to be developed against the use of mobile phones while driving, in order to ensure road safety.

Related purpose: More precisely, however, the consequences of distracted driving triggered by drivers' use of mobile phones while driving are discussed in this speech.

The main objective: The main aim of this speech is to advocate for a mandatory ban on the use of mobile phones when traveling nationwide.

Ladies and gentlemen, first and foremost, it is important to note that the use of cell phones while driving, however urgent, has the ultimate result of distracted driving, which exposes other road which exposes other road users to a lot of life-threatening risks, hence the need to prohibit the use of cell phones while driving. Secondly, banning the use of cell phones by drivers will help to increase the attention that drivers have while driving, hence more safety. The third reason to prohibit cell phone use while driving is that people have previously been advised to avoid the act to no avail. There is a need, therefore, to create a law that compels drivers to heed, and avoid using cell phones while driving. 

The consequences of distracted driving are among others, one of the standard causes of road accidents (Shaaban, 2013). Using cell phones while driving is a central distractor to drivers, hence the potential risks of road carnages. When accidents result from such acts, they do not discriminate, but equally cause as much harm. Therefore, this law would enhance peoples' safety on the roads.  Besides the protection of lives on the streets, such laws would equally protect the property that would otherwise be lost in situations that driving while using cell phones would result in accidents, being a significant cause of accidents (Korpinen & Pääkkönen, 2012).

The second reason for supporting this prohibition is that it would increase the attention of drivers on the roads, mostly lost due to the use of cell phones while driving (driving (Lubomudrov, 2012). In this manner, the drivers’ attention while driving is enhanced, unlike when they use their phones on the road. The establishment of such a law would also compel drivers to keep off this act, which is potentially dangerous. By eliminating recklessness, this legislation would be protective of the other road users, by limiting the risks that face them on the roads (Restricting use of mobile devices in cars, 2009).

Thirdly, there is a need for a law on this matter, since the advisory means previously used to discourage people from using their cell phones while driving has failed. In fact, most drivers have not heeded. The failure of a polite way to curb this act is reason enough to call for the establishment of this law (Lerner, 2011). It, therefore, means that legislation would possibly enhance road safety in a better manner compared to advisory mechanisms. Such rules would also make it an everyday incident among the people, to hang up while driving; hence, nobody would pick an offense with the other for failing to respond to calls while driving (Mills, n.d.). In this way, this law would be achieving a common public understanding and support, hence limiting the possible inconveniences.

Conclusively, these laws would succeed in safeguarding road users by creating accountability, guide drivers into careful driving on the roads, and finally by coming up with binding regulations other than the previous means, to which nobody responded, being only persuasive. It should be the collective responsibility of every person to accept and be supportive of this idea, given its impacts in safeguarding lives and property of road users.

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
