Car Cell Phone Accessories That Keep You Safe - Toyota Parts Blog

headsetWe use our cell phones and smartphones everywhere … even in the bathroom.

Well, it should come as no surprise that cars are one of the most popular places to use your cell phone.

This also causes lots of problems.  Cell phones cause numerous accidents because of distracted driving.

We know that it’s hard to fight the urge to use your cell phone while you drive.

If you have to use your cell phone while driving, consider using any of these accessories below.  These accessories will help keep you focused while driving.

  • Bluetooth Headsets: Bluetooth headsets are an excellent way to keep both hands on the wheel.  Look for Bluetooth headsets that have noise-canceling microphone filters that filter out distracting background noises.  Plantronics, Jawbone and Motorola all make popular Bluetooth headsets.
  • Bluetooth Speakerphones: If you don’t like sticking a Bluetooth headset in your ear, you may want to consider a Bluetooth speakerphone for your car.  Bluetooth speakerphones work similar to traditional speakerphones.  Popular brands include Motorola and Jabra.
  • Phone Mounts: If you’re going to use your cell phone in your car, it should be easily accessible.  A phone mount keeps your cell phone in a visible area of your vehicle, so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road.

Using these three accessories will help to create a safer driving experience.  Remember, safety should be your number one priority.

It’s better to let the call go to voicemail than it is to get into a car accident.
