Why banning the use of cell phones while driving should be mandatory nationwide

Scott Smith

Ashworth University





















A.    I am here to inform that all American states and cities need to ban talking on cell phones while driving.


B. To persuade the audience that using cell phones while driving is unsafe.

C. We should make it illegal to use cell phones while operating motor vehicles. Nationwide.



A. Driving and talking does not mix.

B. Drivers who talk on the phone are less aware of their surroundings

            C. Drivers who are texting do not have their eyes on the road.




III. Driving and talking on a cell phone are two different activities; therefore they cannot mix with the ability of the driver to concentrate. "Studies show that driving while talking on a cell phone is extremely dangerous and puts drivers at a four times greater risk of a crash.”(District Gov.) “Worse than drunk driving; while some of the participants crashed in a virtual vehicle while sober and chatting, none of them crashed while drunk.” (Live Science)

B. Drivers who talk on cell phones have the tendency to stare straight ahead even when they are using hands-free cell phones. This means that drivers become less attentive to what they see in front of them that they are putting their own lives and their passenger’s lives in danger. “Of those people killed in distracted-driving-related crashes, 995 involved reports of a cell phone as a distraction (18% of fatalities in distraction-related crashes).” (NHTSA) “Each day, more than 15 people are killed and more than 1,200 people are injured in crashes that were reported to involve a distracted drive.” (CDC)


            C. Drivers who are texting do not have their eyes on the road; that makes texting while driving dangerous. “Texting while driving takes your eyes off the road for an average of 5 seconds. At 55 mph, that's like driving the length of a football field completely blind.” (TWD) “The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found that text messaging creates a crash risk 23 times worse than driving while not distracted.”(Fcc.go)


           I. Talking on cell phones averts attention away from driving, they can cause problems with focusing on their surroundings, and Texting takes eyes off of the road and puts the attention onto the phone. Government officials need to take more awareness on how people use their cell phones. Banning the use of cell phone will make the road a safer place in the future.

this is what the teacher said when gave the assignment back
Your entire assignment needs to be in proper Outline format ... research the proper formatting for an outline.  Review the assignment, redo and resubmit for a grade.
I – Title
a)                  state the "general purpose" ... e.g. "to persuade .." or "to inform ..."
b)                  give a specific purpose ... e.g. "to persuade the audience that ..."
c)                  give the central idea "what you think should occur or be done"
II – Introduction Give Three Key Points (a., b., & c.) that will be expanded on in the Body. (NOTE: The 3 Key Points in the Introduction are to be the SAME 3 Key Points in the Body. )
III – Body of the Presentation - Summarize each of the three key points from the Introduction giving supporting material (2 sources) for each. This means research sources that provide credibility to your statements. As an example:
A. Main point #1. Young Americans are facing tough financial challenges.
1. One of the things that enable financial challenges is poverty. What's your source for this statement?
2. Another thing that enables financial challenges is debt. What's your source for this statement?
IV – Conclusion - give a one-statement conclusion (summarization)
Always cite your source/resource (including your textbook, websites, etc.) either as a “References” or “Bibliography” section at the end of your paper. Please use the proper “APA” format for citing sources/resources. Refer to Writing Help on your Course Homepage.
