According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, each day in the United States, more than 9 people are killed and more than 1,600 are injured in crashes that are reported to involve a distracted driver. In Vermont so far this year, there have been nearly 7000 crashes, including at least 1248 with injuries and 32 fatalities.

Distracted driving is any activity that diverts a person’s attention away from the primary task of driving – including use of cellphones, iPods, tablets and computers. All distractions endanger the safety of drivers, passengers and bystanders, and cell phone use is the number one distraction behind the wheel.

The Vermont law went into effect on October 1, 2014. It says that a phone must be secure in one’s vehicle, meaning in a pocket, purse, cup holder or mounted. Patrick McManamon of Vt. DMV enforcement explains that a driver may push one button to activate or de-activate the phone.  Thus you may answer an incoming call and use voice activated commands or a speakerphone set, but only one earbud must be used.  Vehicles equipped with Bluetooth connected to a radio is legal.
