Cell Phone Safety
Although it is discouraged, drivers may use a hands-free device if it does not interfere with standard safety equipment. “Use” of a wireless phone and any other hand-held communication device includes, but is not limited to, talking or listening to another person, texting, or sending and receiving electronic messages.
A hand-held phone may be used for an emergency only and the driver must keep one hand on the wheel at all times.
Cell Phone Safety Tips:
- Turn your phone off or put ring on silent to avoid the urge to answer.
- Put your phone in a secure location that is easy to reach, in case of emergency.
- Never dial while driving, move to a safe area off of the road.
- Prior to driving, store important contact information in your phone.
- Use a hands-free unit so that both of your hands are on the steering wheel at all times.
- Become familiar with your phone’s speed dialing and voice-activation features to minimize dialing.
- Prior to driving, set up your voice-mail to take messages.
