Do you drive with phone hands-free?

Driving while distracted is a big issue. Do you hold onto your phone still or have you bought a Bluetooth? Do you shut off your phone when you are driving?

The problem is that there is no data to show whether or not driving distracted actually causes accidents. It seems logical that it does. If you are not paying attention to what you are doing then accidents will happen.

It does look like Alberta will be putting legislation in place to ban the use of hand-held cellphones, grooming, writing and reading while driving. There is also talk of having the police record distracted driving when it is a condition that was in place when they are dealing with car crash incidents.

There was some talk about banning the use of phones altogether. This has been done by some employers while using company vehicles. Most of the new vehicles do have hands-free phone features and it is a very popular item. Talking and driving are here to stay. We just need to control how we do it!
