Any distraction is not good for the driver. I totally agree that headsets as well as hands on the cell phone is dangerous.....
The quality of these headsets is still very poor, so most of the time you're concentrating on what the person is saying instead of driving, so we've really just replaced one problem for another until they can make these headsets better sounding.
Cell phones do present problems when driving. They distract you from watching the road and pedestrians. Even the hands- free system presents a danger. Driving requires 100% of your attention. Giving fines is a great idea.To use the phone , pull over,... some accidents/death have likely been cause by people useing their cell phones. If you want to talk.... then you should walk. If you want to stay alive.... don't talk while you drive... It's a PRIVILEGE not a RIGHT to drive a VEHICLE.
no i no longer use my cell phone while driving unless i'm hooked up to a headset. but i do still see alot of people using their phones and not paying attention to their driving, doing 80 or 90 on the highway, or what ever.
I have a head set I use for my work phone and a separate one for my personal cell, which I don't get good reception on. I do end up using my personal phone without the headset quickly at red lights or when stopped in traffic. I find I talk longer when on the headset because I don't feel the pressure to get off to focus on driving.
What's the difference if you're talking on your cellphone while driving or talking to a passenger in your car? Or eating a burger or smoking a cigarette? If they're going to stop us from talking on our phones while driving they may as well stop us from having passengers in our cars, AND DOGS sitting on our laps while were driving...and no eating/smoking/drinking coffee...etc. Those are all distractions... taking one hand off the wheel to eat or trying to clean up the ketchup on our shirts that dripped while we took that bite...
There is a BIG difference between talking to a passinger in the car and talking on your cell phone while driving!
No there is no difference. Distractions are distractions...when your talking to your passenger your looking over to your right or sometimes in the back through the rearview mirror...What about dogs in your car? How can we allow dogs to just sit on our laps while we drive? Why is there no law for not allowing pets in the car unless in the back with a gate. That is a huge distraction when the dog gets up on the drivers lap and makes the driver lose their view of the road... I don't get it...all these rules dont make any sense and the rules that need to be enforced aren't...
The topic was about driving and using cell phones ... no doubt, it's a dangerous combination.
