Hands-Free Headsets: Industry View
In response to the new study, the Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group), a trade organization, issued a statement. It reads: "Using a Bluetooth enabled hands-free device allows users to keep both hands on the wheel while keeping their eyes on the road and ensures drivers are complying with distracted driving laws. Bluetooth wireless headsets and speakerphones provide an alternative to those people looking to communicate from the car, allowing them to do it with their hands-free. All drivers should assess their unique driving situation and make calling decisions accordingly."
