Hands-Free Calls Are A-Okay

NHTSA's Distracted-Driving Guidelines Say Hands-Free Calls Are A-Okay


In February of 2012, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a rough draft of preliminary recommendations on distracted driving. Those recommendations were aimed specifically at automakers in the hopes of guiding the vehicle design process and minimizing driver distractions.

Now that the public has had a chance to comment on NHTSA's recommendations, LaHood and his team have released their final guidelines, backed by substantial field tests -- and some results of those tests are pretty interesting.

In its whopping, 281-page document (PDF), NHTSA discusses the sorts of features and interfaces that should be restricted for drivers unless vehicles are parked. Among those features are:



Nitro Year: 2007 (1 of 91,815 sold in 07)
Nitro Model: R/T 4X4 Stone White
CAT-BACK Exhaust, CAI, Projector Head Lamps
Fully-Equipped w/all factory options
