Many drivers in the country continue to use a cellphone behind the wheel. In recent years, more drivers have started to use hands-free cellphone devices because they think it is safer than using hand-held cellphones. Despite the common belief that hands-free devices are safer and don't pose any risks, a new study claims that hands-free devices are just as dangerous as hand-held cellphones.
This finding is troubling as 80 percent of motorists say hands-free cellphones are safer to use while driving, according to a study by the National Safety Council. Even though a majority of drivers think these devices reduce the risk of distracted driving, the study by the NSC says both types of cellphone use are risky.
