Talking and driving don’t mix

The best defense against accidents caused by distractions is prevention. If you don’t let any other activity interfere with your driving, there’s less chance for a crash. However, if you must talk on your mobile phone, there is only one safe way to do so; stop the car safely on the side of the road as far away from traffic as possible, and then place or receive a call.
