phone with one of the many Motorola Original

3 Position your wireless phone within easy reach. Be
able to access your wireless phone without removing
your eyes from the road. If you receive an incoming call
at an inconvenient time, if possible, let your voice mail
answer it for you.
4 Let the person you are speaking with know you are
driving; if necessary, suspend the call in heavy
traffic or hazardous weather conditions. Rain, sleet,
snow, ice, and even heavy traffic can be hazardous.
5 If you receiv
e an incoming call at an inconvenient
time do not take notes or look up phone numbers
while driving. Jotting down a to do list or going
through your address book takes attention away from
your primary responsibility driving safely.
6 Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible,
place calls when you are not moving or before
pulling into traffic. Try to plan calls when your car will
be stationary. If you need to make a call while moving,
dial only a few numbers, check the road and your
mirrors, then continue.
7 Do not engage in stressful or emotional
conversations that may be distracting. Make people
you are talking with aware you are driving and suspend
conversations which have the potential to divert your
attention away from the road.
8 Use your wireless phone to call for help. Dial 9 1 1 or
other local emergency number in the case of fire, traffic
accident or medical emergencies.*
