The increasing focus on the dangers of texting while driving, along with the rising legal implications, are bringing a new emphasis on alternative communication strategies when it comes to mobility.
Does that mean that mobility, or using your cell phone for business and personal use is totally off-limits if you’re driving? Of course not; texting may be out, but you can still talk. One could argue that voice communication on a cell phone also contributes to distracted driving. But, I think most people would agree that, when properly implemented with voice dialing and Bluetooth headsets, voice is a far safer way to communicate. The concept of removing your eyes from the road to thumb type on a tiny hand held device while rolling down the road in a 5000-pound vehicle is absurd.
