In the midway somewhere he got a call on his cell phone. Hepicked up the call and within a fraction of second the car struck with another car. All the friendswere lucky enough because all of them had minor injuries except the driver. The driver or myfriend suffered major injuries and spent almost a month in the hospital before discharge from thehospital. That accident took place only because of distraction by the cell phone.Every year thousands of such accident occurred and hundreds of lives have been lost. Using cellphone is one of the major concerns and issues (Strayer et al., 2003). Therefore, usage of cellphones while driving should be banned, and it is the duty of every citizen to support the ban on acell phone while driving. The government should formulate laws or legislation against the use ofcell phone while driving.Body of the SpeechThe cell phone has become one of the necessities of our day to day life.

Initially, the mainfunction of a cell phone was to communicate, but nowadays it is used for various purposes suchas entertainment. A cell phone is also being used for navigation while driving to an unknownplace (Goggin, 2012). But the usage of a cell phone while driving is as dangerous as drink anddrive.

Not asingle country has formulated laws and legislation against the usage of a cell phone whiledriving.The cell phone distracts the driver from their main task to something else, and due to this, everyaccident takes place. The cell phone can distract the drivers visually, cognitively, manually, andauditory (Kahn et al., 2015). A survey revealed that almost 660000 drivers use a cell phone whiledriving. It is quite a big number and major concern for the society. The same survey revealedthat more than 330000 accidents take place every year due to the use of cell phone while driving.
