Hands Free, Not Risk Free

Every morning I get in my brand new 2015 vehicle, put the key in the ignition and the very next thing
that happens is that my car links up with my cell phone.  This is bluetooth technology, something
that until very recently was foreign to me....ok, so I'm a little behind the times.

The buttons to answer the phone, hang up the phone and control the volume are
on my steering wheel.  It didn't take me long to realize that accessing these buttons
could be hazardous.  Well, anytime that you're mentally distracted or remove your eyes
from the road, let's face it you're distracted.

Of course AAA has done a report about this, here is the article:

For me, I have to say that there are many times I don't answer the phone
while driving, even with hands free capabilities. 

 Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
Use common sense while on the road for your safety and the safety of others.

Keeping you safe on the road.
