Safety and texting while driving

Safety should be every driver’s first priority. Drivers must obey all local laws that may include restrictions on the use of mobile telephones or accessories while driving. If use is legal, always keep your hands free to operate the vehicle while driving and use a handsfree device whenever possible. Suspend calls in heavy traffic or hazardous weather. Get to know your mobile phone and its features and make any necessary information inputs prior to driving. Do not input data or engage in text messaging while driving. Mobile telephones should not be used when use may be a distraction to the driver.

The Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) has published further info and tips on safe use of cellular telephones at consumer_info/safety, which we encourage you to review.
