 Re: I have bluetooth & can handle also

Apparently there have been some new studies that show even speaking hands-free on a call is a distraction, because we're having to split our attention between the conversation and our driving. I think there may be some validity to that claim, as much as I hate to admit it, but I agree that it would be similar with GPS. (Trying to read a map while driving would be even worse, though. I can't remember how I managed back when my "GPS" was a Thomas Guide! Wink)

I agree with Yoli, though, that the worst offenders are those driving with the phone in front of their mouths, as if that supposed to be better than holding it against their ear. (You can tell those folks from a mile away because they're the ones driving below the speed limit in the fast lane or swerving all over the road.) I've been using a phone holder (and Bluetooth) ever since that was required here and I love it. (Perhaps I'll get around to syncing my cell phone through my car's sound system before I replace it, but who knows... Wink)
