People who text and drive are 23 time more likely to have and accident. So how do we overcome this huge social problem. Simply telling people not to communicate while driving clearly isn’t working. Fortunately, there are some safe alternatives that will keep your eyes (if not your brain) on the road:

  • A Bluetooth headset
  • Bluetooth built-in technology
  • Voice-to-text apps
  • Auto-responder

If you don’t have any of these options available, either turn the phone off while you’re behind the wheel. If you absolutely have to be contactable, do the right things and pull over to take the call. Remember, it’s not just your life that you’re putting at risk when you text and drive.
