For Your Safety


5. Don’t take notes or look up phone numbers while driving. If you are reading an

address book or business card, or writing a “to-do” list while driving a car, you are

not watching where you are going. It is common sense. Do not get caught in a

dangerous situation because you are reading or writing and not paying attention

to the road or nearby vehicles.

6. Dial sensibly and assess the traffic; if possible, place calls when you are not

moving or before pulling into traffic. Try to plan your calls before you begin your

trip or attempt to coincide your calls with times you may be stopped at a stop

sign, red light, or otherwise stationary. But if you need to dial while driving, follow

this simple tip -- dial only a few numbers, check the road and your mirrors, then


7. Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be distracting.

Stressful or emotional conversations and driving do not mix; they are distracting

and even dangerous when you are behind the wheel of a car. Make people you

are talking with aware you are driving and if necessary, suspend conversations

which have the potential to divert your attention from the road.

8. Use your wireless device to call for help. Your wireless device is one of the

greatest tools you can own to protect yourself and your family in dangerous

situations -- with your device at your side, help is only three numbers away. Dial

911 or other local emergency number in the case of fire, traffic accident, road

hazard, or medical emergency. Remember, it’s a free call on your wireless device!

9. Use your wireless device to help others in emergencies. Your wireless device

provides you a perfect opportunity to be a “Good Samaritan” in your community.

If you see an auto accident, crime in progress or other serious emergency where

lives are in danger, call 911 or other local emergency number, as you would want

others to do for you.

10. Call roadside assistance or a special wireless non-emergency assistance number

when necessary. Certain situations you encounter while driving may require

attention, but are not urgent enough to merit a call for emergency services. But

you can still use your wireless device to lend a hand. If you see a broken-down

vehicle posing no serious hazard, a broken traffic signal, a minor traffic accident

where no one appears injured or a vehicle you know to be stolen, call roadside

assistance or other special non-emergency wireless number.

The above tips are meant as general guidelines. Before deciding to use your mobile

device while operating a vehicle, it is recommended that you consult your applicable

jurisdiction’s local laws or other regulations regarding such use. Such laws or other

regulations may prohibit or otherwise restrict the manner in which a driver may use

his or her device while operating a vehicle.
