Austin Personal Injury Lawyer– On Hands Free Devices

 

There is much debate about whether a hands-free device actually is safer for cell phone use than simply using the cell phone while you’re driving without a hands-free device. Studies are mixed and basically show that anyone talking on the phone will be paying less attention to the roadway.

 

There are number of factors which lead me to conclude that hands-free devices are preferable and actually safer than not having one. First, the best approach is to not use a cell phone at all when driving. If you must use a cell phone, I believe a hands-free device is safer in preventing car accidents for the following reasons:

 

1.  With both hands on the steering wheel you will more apt to pay attention to the roadway than with one hand held up to your ear.

2.  With a hands-free device, you can answer the phone call with out trying to locate your cell phone in your pocket or your purse–thus paying closer attention to driving.

3.  With hands-free device, you eliminate the blind spot created by holding a cell phone to your ear.

 

As mentioned above, without a doubt the best option is to refrain from any use of your cell phone while driving. Many organizations have been created to battle distracted driving and the consequences of texting while driving and cell phone use while driving. It is my hope that Texas will lead on this issue and make our roadways safer for families.

 

If you have a new driver, insist that they refrain from any cell phone use while driving and be prepared to be the example by setting that limitation for yourself.

If you or a loved one have been injured due to a distracted driver and would like to speak with an Austin personal injury attorney call the Baumgartner law firm today.
