    Blackberry While Driving?

    Advertisement



    Howdy,

    How many of you blackberry while driving? Holy cow, I almost got in to a car accident while I was checking emails. That was a lesson learned!~ LOL

    Safety is first, so when I'm driving in around town, I use a handsfree headset on my BB phone. Some of you maybe using bluetooth, which is a great choice.

    So, don't be shy, let us know what your doing with your blackberry while driving. Thanks, and drive safely.

    Re: Blackberry While Driving?

    I BB while I drive all the time. It's not the smartest thing to do I know but..... I have done all the things on the poll including banging out emails to my managers. I drive a stick, so I'll type one handed and shift with my wrist. Sometimes it may take awhile to write a short message but I get it done. I have been trying to keep it to a minimum.

    I also read my RSS feeds etc. And I use Bluetooth to talk on the phone.

    Re: Blackberry While Driving?

    this is a very good poll! I do all of the adove except handsfree Since I don't don't like my Moto bluetooth. We all need to try to curb these habbits I guess.

    Take a look at this:

    Basic BlackBerry Etiquette

    By Pinstack.com member: Andreas Wiebe


    This is far from a complete list but please consider the following basic Do’s and Don’ts when using your BlackBerry:

    Do:
    1. Keep the ringer on vibrate as much as possible (always if possible)
    2. Remove your earpiece when speaking to a person in front of you
    3. Check with establishments regarding rules on cell phone use (some restaurants forbid them)
    4. Pull off the road when you absolutely must answer a message or phone call
    5. Keep phone conversations as short as possible, you’ll save money in the long run

    Don’t:
    1. Answer messages / phone at museums or churches
    2. Answer messages / phone while driving
    3. Walk and Type (you’ll walk into somebody or something)
    4. Leave the ringer on loud in a restaurant
    5. Talk too loudly – Respect the people around you
    6. Put your BlackBerry on the table at restaurants / bars / lounges (it’s disrespectful to the people you are with, and you might forget it when you leave)
    7. Answer unimportant calls / messages at the Gym

    Things to remember:
    1. Every time you answer work messages during non-work hours you’re effectively working for free!
    2. Try to imagine how the person across the table feels when you are answering your BlackBerry… would you want somebody to do that to you?

    All of the above.

    5 spd, BB, coffee and stop signs don't mix.

    Darn it though, if you all weren't so conversational I'd have less to chat about!

    WE could create a new poll and post: Have you ever been busted for DDBW?

    I agree with most of the Basic BlackBerry Etiquette list; however I will probably never pull over to the side of the road to answere a phone call. I think I would turn off my radio for the trip first.

    Guilty as charged here!!

    I have to hang my head in shame on this one. I do use my blackberry while driving. I do however, try really hard to be sure that I dont do that in heavy traffic or when the weather is bad. Am I alone on this one?

    I've used it to check my morning emails and respond to a few. I guess thats the only advantage of sitting in morning traffic.
