For those attempting to get on the right side of handheld texting and driving bans, there are many technological options to consider. One such device is Gripgo, which has been reviewed in a report out of Virginia. A couple of taxi drivers were tasked with taking the device for a spin, and they acknowledged the benefit of having a phone readily available in a manner that didn’t take focus off the road. But even though devices such as this seek to eliminate handheld communications, a member of the Sheriff’s Office of Kanawha County stresses the fact that a driver could still be distracted even with such a device. He wants people to be cognizant of the fact that even a hands-free distraction can endanger oneself as well as nearby commuters.
