Cell Phones

By
Real Estate Agent

When I was a teen, the only communication devices available back then were televisions, radios, and telephones that were plugged into the wall.  The rotary phone do you remember them?   Here is a scream.  The family while vacationing in the Caribbean one of my nephews wanted to make a call but because the phone was a rotary phone, and being a kid of the 80's, did not know how to use it.  He still cannot live that down to this day.

 

Anyhoo I digressed.  Today technology has progressed to the point where we can make and receive calls on a cell phone nothing new here.  Some people even talk and drive unaware or don't care that in some states, (could be the one you are living in) it is illegal to talk and drive with a hand held phone.  

 

A recent study stated that motorists who talk or text on their cell phones are as impaired as drunk drivers.   40 percent of drivers between the ages of 16 and 27 text or talk while driving according to one survey.


Here is something to keep in mind the next time you are tempted to talk or text while driving.  Should you get into an accident, the police and your insurance company may check your cell phone in the moments leading up to the accident.   Cell phone bills are costly, but nothing to compare if your phone proved you were at fault at the time of the accident.

Dee, that is amazing to think that someone would not know how to operate a rotary phone.  You make a very good point about police and insurance companies checking service records concerning possible use during an accident.  Or . . . . .  could just give the NSA a call they might have it already!

How true, never knew the NSA was a big brother.

Dee, 

I totally agree! And reading your blog took me to the time when kids would enjoy TV with us instead of having their own access to everything in these tiny little things called tablets.

Wow, Dee.  Your post on cell phones is really something to think about.  Yes, times have changed since the days of rotary dial.  Also, the stats about accidents and insurance companies is something to ponder :)
