- Call/text before I start driving to let parents, friends and others know when I’ll arrive.
- Program autoreplies to texts and calls so others know you are not responding because you are driving.
- Wait to text or call others until they have stopped driving.
- Pull over to a safe location to check texts, social media, or listen to voice mail.
- Deputize my passenger when I am driving to text or make calls for me.
- When alone, turn my cell phone off before starting to drive.
- Stop texting, or end phone conversations with others once I learn they are driving.
- Pull over to a safe location or wait until I am finished driving to eat or apply make-up.
- Pull over to a safe location or wait until I am finished driving to adjust music, scroll through I-Pods, I -phones or similar devices.
