Many states and locales are adopting strict laws to eliminate the ever growing distraction of mobile phones. It appears that the time is fast approaching where using the cell phone while driving will be a prohibited activity. The only mobile communication device immune from these emerging laws is the hands free cell phone. These cell phone gadgets enable you to still enjoy the use of your mobile phone while keeping both hands on the wheel. They have proven to be an invaluable addition to the cell phone age as they help to eliminate extra distractions while on the road.

From workplace to vehicular accidents the cause can usually be attributed to one factor- Over Confidence. Unfortunately, as with most things, when an activity becomes "second nature" we are willing to compromise our focus. Our over confidence allows us to personally justify our inattentiveness as we believe that we have attained the status of perfection and can avoid any problems which may arise. This is not the case. As a driver, it is our responsibility to ensure the safety of others and ourselves. This task cannot be accomplished if we allow ourselves to be diverted by needless distractions.

Driving, in itself, is a risky venture as we are not only responsible for our own actions but must also be actively monitoring the drivers around us. There are many unexpected events which we could encounter on the roadway. Situations that are unfamiliar to us and which we have yet to encounter need our full attention because we literally have seconds in responding to these circumstances. For instance, if a driver veers in our path we need to be alert and able to quickly respond.

Allowing ourselves to be distracted by cell phones decreases our reaction time and increases our risk of a collision by four times over that of a focused driver. Matter in fact, 80% of all crashes are directly related to inattentiveness. It is impossible to remain vigilant and in complete control of our vehicle when one of our hands are assigned the task of holding our cell phone. I am not advocating that we completely remove cell phone use from the "driving equation" as this would be impractical because cell phones have introduced a level of convenience never experienced before. But, as drivers, we do have the responsibility of removing needless distraction if it is within our power to do so. Being proactive may very well save the life of the next child who darts out in front of us or the child seated behind us.

It is this understanding that has enabled hands free cell phone devices to be exempt from cell phone laws and regulations. They enable the driver to have a phone conversation within their vehicle while still having both hands on the wheel. They have proven to be a great asset. Unfortunately, in these hard economic times, hands free cell phone devices are quite expensive and many of us cannot afford them. Nonetheless, the trend clearly shows that they will soon be mandatory if you want to continue having phone conversations while driving. With that said, there is an affordable solution to obtaining a hands free device for your vehicle and it is called the Jupiter Jack.

The Jupiter Jack is a cell phone accessory which plugs into the headphone port of your cell phone. Once plugged in it broadcasts your conversation on 99.3FM of your radio. It also comes with a cell phone holder which effortlessly mounts to your car. How can you go wrong for $20! Basically, you just preset 99.3FM into your car radio and at the push of a button you have an instant hands free cell phone device for the fraction of the price. Jupiter Jack is the affordable solution to remaining legal and preserving the safety of your family and the public.
