Smart Practices While Driving
On the Road - Off the Phone
The primary responsibility of every driver is the safe operation of his
or her vehicle.
Responsible drivers understand that no secondary task should be
performed while driving whether it be eating, drinking, talking to
passengers, or talking on a mobile phone - unless the driver has
assessed the driving conditions and is confident that the secondary
task will not interfere with their primary responsibility.
Do not engage
in any activity while driving a moving vehicle which may cause you to
take your eyes off the road or become so absorbed in the activity that
your ability to concentrate on the act of driving becomes impaired

Check the laws and regulations on the use of mobile devices and their
accessories in the areas where you drive. Always obey them. The use
of these devices may be prohibited or restricted in certain areas. For
example, only hands-free use may be permitted in certain areas.
Before answering calls, consider your circumstances. Let the call go
to voicemail when driving conditions require. Remember, driving
comes first, not the call!
If you consider a call necessary and appropriate, follow these tips:
Use a hands-free device;
Secure your phone within easy reach;
Place calls when you are not moving;
Plan calls when your car will be stationary;
Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations;
