Top Selling Hands Free Devices

Title Insurance with AmeriTitle

The Oregon Senate approved legislation that requires drivers to use hands-free devices with their cell phones when operating a motor vehicle. House Bill 2377 took effect on Jan. 1, 2010

I don't generally expound on my personal opinions but I have to say I am in favor of this new law.  I drive all day so my car is my "office." I see a lot of really irresponsible people weaving in and out of lanes, completely checked out, while hurdling a vehicle down the road at 65 mph. 

I'm still getting used to my new Bluetooth.  I feel a little like a robot (that's the bonus part) and it is very cool to be able to verbally tell my phone who to call and then they magically appear in my ear.  We've come a long way since the giant "brick phones." 

On the downside, I'm quite sure I've experienced some hearing loss in my left ear since I've been wearing my new gadget.  I'm also concerned about the possibility of increasing my odds at getting brain cancer.   So, the option I'm most in favor of (for me) is still to pull over or to return calls when I'm not driving.  

On a positive note, I feel much safer seeing all the people on the road with their hands-free devises securely in place and yacking away.  We can easily avoid a $140 ticket and be safer drivers using a hands-free option. 

I would love to hear some feedback from people on your favorite hands-free device.  I have a friend with the Bluetooth enabled car and it sounds great with the caller's voice coming out of the speakers.  I want that!

Nice post Rosi.  We've had the law here in NY for a few years now.  I've not heard any stats on whether or not it has decreased accidents but I'm sure it has helped.  We also have to be careful that our kids don't see us breaking this law.  We MAY be able to drive and dial at the same time but teenagers just don't have the same experience we do!!!!  Best wishes from Clifton Park NY!!!

I got a cool BlueTooth gizmo at COSTCO for $39 that clips to my sun visor. I like it because I'm hands free and don't have an ear piece. For some reason I can't hear very well with them. But that might be all those years playing in a rock band.

I've been very happy with my Plantronics that I picked up for less that $50 last year. It has never broke down or cause me any issues. I would certainly by another one when the time comes to do so. By, the way my account rep never contacted me about Ticor Online.

Hello Lewis on the other side of the country!  Yes, the teens are the ones who weave the most and scare the heck out of me.  How can you compose a text and drive at the same time... really?!

Rene' - I'll have to check that one out.  The ear piece is killing me. 

Todd - I e-mailed you back!!  I'll call you - with my ear piece now.  :o)

Rosi, I got one of those jawbones and I just figured out which ear piece to wear.  sheesh.  I was wondering why i couldn't hear any one.  I still like the big rubber band idea like you guys had on your flier in the fall!
