Mobile phone do's and don'ts

Mobile phone do's and don'ts

With the wide spread usage of mobile phones it is important that we understand its best usage practices.

c

Do's

  • Only use your phone when necessary.
  • Keep the calls short.
  • Carry the phone away from your body when it is on standby.
  • Buy a phone with a long 'talk time'. It is more efficient, with less powerful emissions.

Don'ts

  • Don't buy a phone with an internal aerial, you want the aerial as far away from your head as possible.
  • Don't use your phone when the reception is weak, the phone needs more power to communicate with the base station, and so the radiowave emissions are higher.
  • Don't buy a phone with a high 'SAR' value, this means that it emits more radiation.
  • Don't buy protective gadgets unless they have been independently tested.

More Tips

  • Mobile phones should not be used in filling stations
  • Mobile phones should be turned off before exiting the vehicle when stopping in a filling station.
  • All Road users have a special responsibility for the safety of themselves, their passengers, other road users and pedestrians.
  • NEVER try to use a hand-held mobile phone or device for any reason while driving.
  • ONLY ever make or take a hands-free call when you are certain it is completely safe to do so. KEEP conversations short and easy - end calls that become difficult, distracting or stressful immediately.
  • SET UP the advanced functions of your mobile phone device, such as the messaging service, to give yourself time and peace of mind to focus on your driving.

Best Practices

  • If you have a passenger, ask them to manage your mobile calls for you.

  • Tell your caller you are driving before you begin your conversation, and that you may need to end your short call at any time.
