Hands-free Devices While Driving
Because so many people have cellular phones today, the prevalence of hands-free devices is increasing in vehicles. National marketing campaigns are targeting cell phone use while driving as extremely negative so many drivers are turning to hands-free devices while they operate their vehicles. However, while hands-free devices such as headphones free up a driver’s hands, they still do limit a driver’s awareness of road conditions. The use of headphones or Bluetooth devices for entertainment or to carry on a telephone conversation remains dangerous.

Dangers of Distracted Driving
Distracted drivers injure thousands of people in car accidents every year in the United States, and many of these car accidents could have been prevented if drivers had devoted their full attention to the road. Some of the most prevalent dangers of distracted driving include:
- Inability to slow down/stop in response to roadway events or conditions
- Excessive speed
- Impaired visibility
- Unawareness of other drivers
- Dangerous swerving
- Dangerous lane changing
Headphones and other hands-free devices can easily cause distractions for drivers, potentially leading to car accidents and injuries.
If you or someone you love was injured in a car accident that could have been avoided if the driver of the other vehicle had been devoting his or her attention to the roadway, you can fight back.
