Your wireless phone gives you the powerful ability to
communicate by voice, almost anywhere, anytime. But an
important responsibility accompanies the benefits of wireless
phones, one that every user must uphold.
When driving a car, driving is your first responsibility. When using
your wireless phone behind the wheel of a car, practice good
common sense and remember the following tips:
1. Get to know your wireless phone and its features, such as
speed dial and redial. If available, these features help you
to place your call without taking your attention off the road.
2. When available, use a hands-free device. If possible, add
an additional layer of convenience and safety to your
wireless phone with one of the many hands free
accessories available today.
3. Position your wireless phone within easy reach. Be able to
access your wireless phone without removing your eyes
from the road. If you get an incoming call at an
inconvenient time, let your voice mail answer it for you.
4. Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving;
if necessary, suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous
weather conditions. Rain, sleet, snow, ice and even heavy
traffic can be hazardous.
5. Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving.
Jotting down a "to do" list or flipping through your address
book takes attention away from your primary
responsibility, driving safely.
