PART THREE INTRODUCTORY PARGRAPH

In this digital and technological era where experiments and taking risks is the order of the day, it is difficult to use Public Service Announcement as a way to reduce distracted driving. This is because, in most cases, some of the people have developed a habit of assumption which leads to the failure of adhering to the Public Service Announcement. Most people want to prove that they can handle more than two things at the same time, hence, by making announcements, this will not stop as they already have an attitude that it is a sign of their ability to perform numerous tasks at once. However, on the other hand, there appears to be a way forward to use this method for those keen drivers who will be courteous to follow the Public Service Announcements.

PART FOUR BODY PARGRAPH

Reasons against the Public Service Announcement as a way to solve distracted driving include the fact that most people tend to assume any announcements made and they lack consequences. In this case, a mere announcement will not have an impact as compared to consequences that are brought forward to ensure that people are aware of the implications. Human beings are more cultured to the use consequences to stop a certain habit or to start a new habit. Given this fact, then it is impossible to rely on these Public Service Announcement to reduce distracted driving.

The other reason is the media of communication of Public Service Announcement. In the current technological times, where life has been turned into a lone circle where people use social media to communicate. The use of media like television and other channels that are not linked to social media could mean that the information does not reach the entire population apart from those that use these channels of communication. It is therefore impossible to meet the target population like the young people.

Public Service Announcement may no longer impact on a liberal community. This means that people have different perceptions on distracted driving and through the use of Public Service Announcement, there are minimal chances of changing this mentality to a more viable one that makes sense to human beings. It is therefore effortless to use Public Service Announcement in this case as people associate distracted driving to lack of understanding the basic rules of traffic, as to some people, it is acceptable as long as you as not breaking any traffic rules.
