Hands Free Is Not Risk Free!
A ban on all mobile phone conversation behind the wheel, including hands free has been called for by National Transportation Safety Board Chair Deborah Hersman. This after the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety released a report yesterday containing findings that voice text messaging is much more distracting to drivers than making a call with a hand held device.
Over the last few years DUI law enforcement officers have been increasingly stopping drivers for texting or talking on a hand held device. California DUI lawyers consistently remind their clients and the public that speaking or texting on a hand held phone is extremely distracting and dangerous, can cause you to swerve, or cause a collision with another person. If you have been drinking or using medications, it could cause you to be arrested for a DUI. The Law Office of Gene Dorney, Newport Beach DUI Law Office, strongly suggests that you turn off and put away your phone in the glove box prior to driving.
The National Transportation Safety Board and The Law Office of Gene Dorney, Newport DUI Law Office, are in agreement, “Hands Free is Not Risk Free”.
