Tips For Cell Phone Safety While Driving

If it is necessary to use a wireless device while driving, follow some basic do's and don't to ensure the wireless device does not become a distraction.

  • Be responsible behind the wheel... Don't text and drive!
  • Get to know your wireless device and its features such as speed dial and redial.
  • Position your wireless device within easy reach.
  • Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; place calls when you are not moving.
  • Let the person you are speaking with know you are driving; if necessary suspend the call in heavy traffic or hazardous weather conditions.
  • Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving.
  • Use a hands-free device for convenience and comfort.
  • Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that might divert your attention from the road.
  • Dial 911 or other local emergency numbers to report serious emergencies; it's free from your wireless phone.
  • Use your wireless phone to help others in emergencies.
  • Call roadside assistance or a special non-emergency wireless number when necessary.
