Do one, or the other. Not both
Talking and driving is a lethal mix – most particularly if you’re on your cell phone. Not only does talking on a cellphone impair one’s driving, but using so-called smart phones for email and other distractions takes the risk to a whole new level. We cannot do two things at once without one of them suffering, despite what we would like to believe about ourselves.
Effectively, this means that you should rather not discuss important things such as relationship problems or job issues while you’re driving, even if you have a hands-free kit.
You should actually not be talking on the phone at all. Or even worse, SMSing. So if an important call comes through while you’re behind the wheel, pull over if it is safe, or wait until you get home.
Or else you could be horrified at what you’ve agreed to while your eyes were on the road, that’s if you make it home.
