is encouraging all Ontario drivers to prepare for the new law that mandates the use of hands-free devices when using mobile phones on the road. The law will be effective from October 26 and Plantronics (News
) suggests users to educate themselves on the hands-free options available and following safety tips.
There are more than 8 million licensed drivers in Ontario. Plantronics says using headsets can help these drivers to continue talking on a cell phone in the car while keeping both hands on the wheel. These drivers should also consider few safety tips while using a headset and driving. People should be more careful behind the wheel and should try using their phone and headset together before they drive.
The company suggests drivers to get more organized and program all of their frequently called numbers into their phone. The drivers should ensure their headsets are properly connected to the phone and try placing and receiving calls only when it's absolutely necessary.
"Plantronics offers an array of headset models that fit a wide range of usage patterns, budgets and personal styles while still providing the first-rate audio quality, comfort, and style that consumers expect from us," said Elizabeth Bastiaanse-Hamren, vice president of product marketing, Plantronics, in a release. "No matter the hands-free solution they choose, we are glad to know that the citizens of Ontario will now have both hands on the wheel when talking."
Plantronics notes Plantronics Voyager PRO, provides an advanced noise-canceling and wind noise reduction technology and features AudioIQ2, the next generation of its digital signal processing (DSP) technology. Plantronics Voyager PRO is extremely comfortable and provides six hours of continuous talk time before having to recharge.
