I personally believe that driving and using the phone, whether texting or calling, are two mutually exclusive tasks. Distracted driving claims thousands of lives each year, not to mention those hundreds of thousands who were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver.
Many claim that new technology is making driving while multi-tasking easier and, more importantly, safer. Products like a Bluetooth have helped thousands of drivers make phone calls without distracting themselves by using a phone with their hands.
A Bluetooth unit, which is a small headpiece that wraps around a driver’s ear, works by having a wireless connection to a driver’s cellphone. Using a voice command, the driver can activate their phone and call any number. The earpiece acts like a small phone, so the driver can talk and listen to people they call without ever picking up their phone while driving. Now, producers of new Bluetooth models claim that their products are helping drivers perform more commands without risking their well-being or other drivers.
Products like the Parrot Bluetooth are in the front-line of advanced communication technology. This Bluetooth model connects to a driver’s smartphone instead of a conventional cellphone. The Parrot Bluetooth’s capability to connect to a smartphone will give the driver access to more commands than phone calls. While driving, the driver can command the Bluetooth to send text messages, get GPS directions, open up e-mails, tell the driver the latest news of the day, or inform the driver about the weather. A driver can even download files or phone apps with the Parrot Bluetooth.
Drivers can purchase a Parrot Bluetooth car kit at AmericanSecurityCo.com. AmericanSecurityCo.com has been providing the latest home and automobile security technology since 1990. Since 1993, the business has conducted transactions online and sold technology to customers across the country. With the advent of new car technology, like rear view cameras, AmericanSecurityCo.com sells the latest car tech that can help drivers drive safely while conducting numerous activities. Customers can purchase the Parrot Bluetooth kit from AmericanSecurityCo.com and similar brands from Parrot, like the Parrot Asteroid. Parrot Asteroid comes with a monitor kit that can be installed onto the car’s dashboard. With voice commands and a touch-screen, a driver can easily conduct numerous activities while driving without compromising their concentration or safety.
Despite the claims made by the manufacturers of these products, I still believe that distracted driving is a no-no and motor vehicle accidents need to be minimized as much as possible. A life, whether that of the driver, passenger or bystander is much more important than anything else.
