"Time is precious and people are using wireless devices to help them be more productive," said Rich Garwood, president of Verizon Wireless' Northern California and Nevada Region. "If they choose to use a device while driving, it's important that they know both the law and responsible driving tips and options."
Hands free cell phone law
Consumers have a number of choices available to help them comply with the new law, from universally compatible headsets to phones with built-in speakerphones and voice-activated dialing. Most phones can be fastened easily to a car's vent or visor and removed when you leave the vehicle. No installation or hard wiring is necessary. Hands-free car kits, which provide a cradle for the phone and an external microphone, offer drivers another option for complying with the new law. Verizon Wireless, the most widely used brand of wireless service, offers the following responsible driving tips:
- Remember - safe driving is always your first responsibility when behind the wheel.
- Activate your voicemail service if you haven't already, so you won't miss a call if traffic conditions prevent you from answering the phone. You can retrieve your messages later.
- If you're taking advantage of any navigation service, including VZNavigator, program the address into your phone before you leave the curb, either on the handset or online, then you'll only need to listen to the directions.
- Program important and frequently dialed numbers into your phone to take advantage of speed dialing and voice dialing features on your phone.
- Set up your playlist on your V-CAST Music-enabled device, or any music player, while you are stopped.
- Turn your phone to speakerphone or put on your headset. Many phones have speakerphone capability. Headset models available from Verizon Wireless range from Bluetooth devices for individual use, or car mount, to hands-free ear buds compatible with devices from many wireless providers.
