Hand-held cell phone use now banned in eight states
The states of California, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Utah, and Washington as well as the District of Columbia have all banned hand-held cell phone use by drivers.
The statistics regarding cell phone use while driving may be alarming to some. Using a wireless device is the number one source of driver inattention. And, according to Carnegie Mellon University, driving while using a cell phone reduces the amount of brain activity associated with driving by 37 percent.
In addition, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety report that drivers who use cell phones are four times as likely to get into crashes serious enough to injure themselves.
Drivers can keep their hands free and their eyes on the road with the use of a hands-free device like the Roadwarrior B250-XT Wireless headset.
The headset can be used with a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone for convenience and safety, as well as to comply with state laws on cell phone use while driving. It's also easy to use with fingertip volume, mute and call answer and end controls.
In addition to a comfortable, adjustable fit, the device features a superior noise-canceling microphone that blocks out engine, road and background noise, a long-lasting battery and digital encryption to ensure that your conversations stay private.
