When driving, do you struggle to find your cell phone as it vibrates and rings in your pocket, purse or console? Each day in the US, 8 people are killed and 1,161 are injured in crashes involved distracted driving.
Because two-thirds of Americans own smartphones, distracted driving is a very common theme in the US.
The solution for thousands of Americans are magnetic mounts that place cell phones within view while keeping your hands on the wheel. As illustrated by growing sales across the web, magnetic holders are a safer alternative for drivers who often find themselves on their phones.
The latest is the Epic Magnetic Phone Holder produced by Why Epic that firmly attaches to your dashboard leaving your vents unblocked. With two neodymium magnets, the mount has twice the magnetic strength keeping your phone in place through bumps, twists and vibrations.
Whatever mount you choose, ensure it keeps your phone visible, accessible and right where you need it.
2 Tips for Safer Driving
- Put your phone on silent, or better yet in airplane mode to prevent distracting calls and texts.
- Connect your phone to a bluetooth mic and speaker before driving for safer calls.
