Have you heard that the federal goverment, Transportation Secretary, is trying to ban cellphone use of any kind - TEXTING and RECEIVING AND PLACING phone calls while driving.
They do have very graphic evidence of accidents which have been caused by those using cellphones and taking their eyes off the road. It is estimated that you take your eyes off the road for five seconds at a time on the cellphone, doesn't sound very long but the combination of those five seconds and 55 miles an hour spells danger.
This ban I am told cannot be put in on a federal basis but must be initiated state by state. How do you feel about your state taking this action? Here in Massachusetts you will be ticketed for texting while operating your motor vehicle. What are the guidelines for your state? Are they enforced?
A cellphone ban, a time of re-establishing communication callback times with our Clients and each other. We will all have to be retrained to do our business, but safety must come first.
Our Clients, Customers and other Agents are so accustomed to our returning our calls to them while we are in our vehicles, how do you think this will impact our business?
Happy Holidays and drive safely out there....but call me back!
