Here are some tips and facts that will help be safer with your phone on the car, some people do not know that cellphone are ne the most dangerous things that can cause car accidents.
to make your day a little safer and your life a little easier, here are some cell phone safety tips:
- Try to place calls while your vehicle is stationary.
- Use a “hands-free” or speaker phone accessory (these are available for most if not all hand-held cell phones). Not only does this allow you to keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road, but using a hands-free kit keeps the phone further from your head reducing exposure to the alleged tumor-causing radiation.
- Never read or write text messages while driving. Taking your eyes off the road for a second or two can result in a collision. Pull over to the side of the road if you must text.
- Program frequently called numbers into your phone’s memory allowing you to keep dialing to a minimum.
- If you must dial when the car is moving, hold the phone at eye level so you will have a clear view of the road.
- Do not make emotional phone calls while driving (quitting your job, breaking up with a boyfriend or girlfriend, etc.) as you will be focused primarily on the call rather than your driving.
- Never read or write while the car is moving. If you must write a note or take down a phone number during a conversation, PULL OVER!
- Make sure your phone is within easy reach while driving.
- Be careful when pulling over to place calls. To avoid being a crime victim, do not stop in dangerous areas and keep your car doors locked.
- If your phone is connected to your car’s power source, disconnect your phone before using jumper cables. The power surge could damage your phone.
- Make sure 911 is programmed into your phone’s memory should you need to report an accident or other emergency.
