The National Safety Council, or NSC, is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to reducing the number of workplace & on-the-road accidents that happen in the U.S. each year. According to the NSC's mission statement, they accomplish this through, "...leadership, research, education and advocacy." Caritas has found that the NSC has the most extensive knowledge base when it comes to driver safety.
In their database, we found a helpful info-graphic that details the dilemma of the "hands-free" function on devices, which many people believe to be less dangerous to use while driving. Contrarily, the NSC's studies have actually found that any use of technology while driving--whether hands-free or otherwise--drastically increases the chances of an accident.
View the NSC's info-graphic on why hands-free is NOT risk-free below, and leave a comment with your response! And, as always, buckle up & stay safe!
