2 When available, use a hands free device. If possible,
add an additional layer of convenience to your wireless
phone with one of the many Motorola Original hands
free accessories available today.
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 weathe
r conditions. Rain, sleet, snow,
ice, and even heavy traffic can be hazardous.
5 If you receive 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.
