• Turn it off. Turn your phone off or switch to silent mode before you get in the car.
• Spread the word. Set up a special message to tell callers that you are driving and you’ll

• Use your passengers. Ask a passenger to make the call for you.
• Prepare. Review maps and directions before you start to drive. If you need help when
you are on the road, pull over to a safe location to review the directions again.
• Focus on the task at hand. Refrain from smoking, eating, drinking, reading and any
