You probably don't need us to tell you this, but texting and driving is bad, very bad! Everyone from Obama
to whoever writes those email forwards our mom sends us will tell you the same thing. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
, drivers who are texting can be more than 20 times more likely to crash than non-distracted drivers. Don't let yourself fall into that category!
We know maximizing our time is crucial, right? We can refrain from texting and driving, which is illegal in many states, but sometimes talking and driving is unavoidable. That's where we come in with our IOGEAR Solar Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit
. This bad boy lets you wirelessly place and receive calls on your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone while keeping your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. Oh, and it uses the sun's rays to charge your phone, so you are helping Mother Earth simultaneously.
We think it's pretty cool, and our friends at Smart Money magazine do too – they were nice enough to give the kit a nod in this article
. They position our hands-free product alongside services for concerned parents such as Getizup.com
, which allow parents to disable a cellphone once a car hits a certain speed, say 12-miles-per-hour. These are just some of the products on the market that are keeping our highways and roads a little bit safer.
