10 Call roadside assistance or a special wireless non-emergency assistance number
when necessary. Certain situations you encounter while driving may require
attention, but are not urgent enough to merit a call for emergency services. But
you still can use your wireless phone to lend a hand. If you see a broken-down
vehicle posing no serious hazard, a broken traffic signal, a minor traffic accident
where no one appears injured or a vehicle you know to be stolen, call roadside
assistance or other special non-emergency wireless number.
Careless, distracted individuals and people driving irresponsibly represent a hazard
to everyone on the road. Since 1984, the Cellular Telecommunications Industry
Association and the wireless industry have conducted educational outreach to
inform wireless phone users of their responsibilities as safe drivers and good
citizens. As we approach a new century, more and more of us will take advantage of
the benefits of wireless telephones. And, as we take to the roads, we all have a
responsibility to drive safely.
The wireless industry reminds you to use your phone safely when driving.
