Cell Phone Safety on the Road

Car Insurance Quote

The use of cell phones has skyrocketed in recent years. Studies have estimated people spend 60% of their cell phone time in the car. The opportunity to be distracted while dialing or talking on the cell phone is ever increasing.

Only a few states have banned hand-held cell phone use while driving. These states include New York, New Jersey, and Washington, D.C. Other states and cities have considered similar laws.

Cell phone safety tips

Whenever possible, pull over or wait until you've stop before you use your cell phone. But if you must use the cell phone while driving, below are a few tips to help you safely use your cell phone on the road.

  • Use the features of your phone - these include speed dial, redial, automatic redial, memory dial, and/or voice dialing. Know how to use these features easily and without have to fumble or take your eyes off the road.

  • Use hands-free devices - these include cell phone cradles mounted in your car, or hands-free microphones.

  • Have your phone in easy reach - while driving, you don't want to be fumbling or digging through your bag looking for your cell phone. The phone should be in easy reach without have to take your eyes off the road.

  • Avoid long conversations - Keep your conversation short. Mention that you are driving and will get back to them once you are at your destination. Avoid stressful or emotional conversation.

  • Dial when stopped - Try dialing when your car is not moving or stop at a red light or stop sign. You must still keep alert to the 'stop and go' traffic around you to avoid a low speed accident.
