obey them. Also, if using your phone while driving, please:


Give full attention to driving. Driving safely is your first responsibility.


Use hands-free operation, if available.


Pull off the road and park before making or answering a call, if driving
conditions so require.

If you must use the phone while driving, please use one-touch, speed
dialing, and auto answer modes.
