Cell Phone Use in Tennessee

Happy New Year! As we all prepare to leap forward with fresh resolve, many of us are considering ways that we can bring greater health and benefit to our lives. One of the ways we can do this is by examining our cell phone use, especially on the roads of Johnson City! Here are some tips to keep you safe on the road:

First of all, beware of new laws coming in. As of July 1, 2018, there will be steep fines imposed for talking on a handheld device in a school zone. Laws will continue to evolve and change as technology does, so be sure to check frequently for updates. 

However, if you are behind the wheel, you shouldn’t be touching your phone at all! Many newer vehicles now include Bluetooth-enabled phone interfaces so that you can access calls at a click of a button. 

Another option is a cell phone mount like this one from Amazon. There are hundreds of mounts on the market now, so take a look around and find the one that suits you best. 

Whether you are a Luddite or a tech guru, we hope that you stay safe this month on the roads of Johnson City...and always! And as usual, don’t hesitate to bring your car to us for regular auto repair and maintenance. We can’t wait to see you!
