Distracted Driving (Texting and Driving)
How many of you here have a cell phone? Ok, now how many of you here drive? Lastly, how many of you here text and drive? Even if it is just a quick glance down at your phone every now and then. Now picture this, you are stuck in traffic and you hear your phone vibrate, you begin thinking about who could be texting you. Is it your friend asking you about the homework due, or it might be your mom who needs your help. You being thinking, one quick glance won’t hurt, the traffic is slow you’ll be really quick. Next thing you know the traffic stops while you’re not looking, and you run into the car in front of you. SIGNIFICANCE: According to the California DMV the leading cause of death for 15-20 year olds are car accidents. And the majority of those who died due to these collisions were the passengers. An article written by NHTSA states that between 2012-2017 nearly 20,000 people died in accidents involving a distracted driver. That includes pedestrians, other drivers, passengers, and distracted drivers.
Driving a car comes with a lot of responsibilities, and getting distracted while driving is extremely easy and can lead to a lot of accidents and fatalities. This speech is going to inform you of the dangers of texting and driving, and how we can prevent it.
During this speech I am going to discuss the problems of texting and driving. Then I am going to discuss the causes of texting and driving, and finally how we can prevent it.
According to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute in 2017 3,166 people were killed in 2,935 distracted driving accidents. That is 9% of all fatal crashes in the US. According to the previously cited NHTSA, sending one text message can take your eyes off the road for approximately 5 seconds. An article written by Edgar Snyder and Associates states that if you are travelling at 55mph that is like driving an entire football field with your eyes closed. Now, I want you to close your eyes and picture a football field, now imagine all the people you could encounter while driving the length of the field. That’s a lot of people to not see or pay attention to. Texting and driving is 6x more likely to cause an accident than drunk driving according to the previously cited Edgar Snyder and Associates . All because you won’t put your phone down. Just like many of you, I believe that I would never get in an accident or be in harm’s way. But, while texting and driving we not only endanger ourselves but our passengers, pedestrians, and other drivers. An article written on March 5, 2019 by Teensafe states that nine people die every single day because of distracted drivers. In Minnesota, a 17 year old killed a father and his 10 year old daughter while texting and driving, by running a red light he didn’t see. A 19 year old university student died because of one letter: “k”. A 7 year old boy was hit and dragged 20 ft, leaving him paralyzed all due to a driver who was texting and driving. These are only a few of the thousands of stories there are.
Whats going on right now that contributes or causes problem.
As you can see from the examples I gave you, texting and driving can affect anyone. But what has caused this sudden rise in texting and driving accidents?
Back in the day, having a wired phone was a big deal. Today, we live in an age of technology. According to a June 12 2019 article published by Pew Research Center , over 96% of Americans own a cell phone, of those 81% own a smartphone. Everything is full of technology around us, people use their phones for everything; to stay connected, as navigation, etc. Since people are so used to cell phones, they think they can drive while using them. An article written by IceBike states that 82% of teenagers in America own cell phones, out of the 82% 52% talk on the phone while driving, and 32% text while driving.
Another cause for texting and driving incidents is that children see their parents doing it and begin to mimic them. The previously cited IceBike states that 48% of kids in their younger teen years have been in the car while the driver was texting and driving. When researchers asked teenagers why they text and drive, even though they are well aware of the consequences, their answer is that they have seen adults do it too.
Now that I have introduced you to the causes of texting and driving, I will now explain to you solutions to stop this epidemic. Many states are enacting laws, according to the CDC , as of March 2019, 16 states have banned drivers from hand-held devices. Additionally, as of March 2019, texting while driving is banned in 47 states. The federal government has also taken initiative, and began passing bans that banned federal employees from texting while driving on government business or equipment. Other companies saw this and began enacting bans on the use of hand-held devices. According to the previously cited CDC , the NHTSA found that due to campaigns and increased policing the percentage of distracted drivers dropped
an average of 1.5%. As for what you could do? It’s simple, put your phone down or pull to the side of the road.
In this speech I have told you about what texting and driving is, what the cause of texting and driving is, and what preventative measures have been taken.
Driving can be a dangerous game, especially if you are distracted. This speech will inform you of the dangers of texting and driving, and how we can put an end to this epidemic.
TIE BACK TO ATTENTION GAINER:
Now back to our first story, if you would have decided to ignore your phone you would’ve been able to react in time to the traffic stopped in front of you, which would’ve stopped you from causing an accident. I hope you all think twice before looking down at your phone, remember you can end a life in as little as 5 seconds.
