Hands-free Devices Still Unsafe By Atlantic/Smith, Cropper & Deeley 6/25/2015 Everyone knows that using a mobile device while driving is dangerous, but new data suggests that using a hands-free accessory may be just as distracting. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), 80 percent of drivers believe that using a hands-free accessory for their mobile devices will make them safer drivers. However, the NSC conducted over two dozen studies that found that using a hands-free device is just as dangerous as using a hands-on device. Always encourage drivers to refrain from using mobile devices or to pull to the side of the road if their use is absolutely necessary. Are you using a hands-free device?
