Safe Driving Suggestions
Put cell phones/PDAs on vibrate or silent mode, or turn the device off, before starting the car.
Pull over to a safe place and put the vehicle in Park if a call must be made or received, or to make adjustments to a Global Positioning System (GPS).
Modify your voicemail greeting to indicate you are unavailable to answer calls or return messages while driving.
Inform clients, associates and business partners of company policy to explain why calls may not be returned immediately.
