The Hands-Free Debate

Is it safe to use a hands-free device to talk on a cell phone while driving?

  • Debate this question for three minutes with a partner or with teams taking each position: Yes, it’s safe or No, it’s deadly.

CONCLUSION: So far, the research indicates that the cognitive distraction of having a hands-free phone conversation causes drivers to miss the important visual and audio cues that would ordinarily help you avoid a crash.
