Saturday Six

1. How often do you talk on your cell phone when you are driving? Of those times, how often are you using “hands-free” equipment like Bluetooth or ear buds?

I don't have a car. I sometimes call on the bycicle, not hands free.

2. Considering your most recent “close calls” caused by other drivers, would you say that the majority of the trouble-making drivers were using their cell phones at the time, too old to be driving, too young to be driving, or generally just not paying attention?

I have seen quite some problems caused by calling druvers. But now it's forbidden in my country and the fines are quite high I haven't seen problems during the last months.
Most problems are caused by people who're talking with someone else in the car.

3. Do you favor a law that makes it illegal to use a cell phone behind the wheel at all — even when operating “hands-free?” Why or why not?

Well it's illegal here to use a cellphone without “hands-free” and it sure is a huge improvement.
I wish that using cellphones in traffic would be forbidden completely. It's nuts people call all day.

4. Take the quiz: How’s Your Cell Phone Etiquette?

Your Cell Phone Etiquette is 8% Bad, 92% Good

You are practically a cell phone saint. You never annoy the people around you.

Everyone should have phone manners as good as yours. And you sure wish they did!

5. Where was the last inappropriate place (such as a movie theater or museum), where you heard someone else’s cell phone go off?

During diagnostics of my son.

6. Where was the last inappropriate place where your own cell phone embarrassed you by going off when you thought you had turned it off?

Hasn't happened.

  1. Yikes I must have done my first Saturday 6 from a old one, or different spot. I get anoyed when some ones cell phone rings in a resteraunt. I think they should turn the sound on vibrate. A friend and I were at this fancy resteraunt that I love, and her phone rang: I had a hard time trying to convience her that that was uncool. Have a great weekend.

  2. No car~good for you. No pollution and gas payments. I bet you are in great shape! I believe we have the same views on cell phone etiquette! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

  3. Hello there! Thanks for stopping by the blog and reading my answers. I just read yours and that totally begs the question: What country are you in?

  4. My phone went off in a theater one time; I thought I had set it to “Silent”. I think one of the reasons that my cellphone is on when I thought I set it to “Silent” is because I am left-handed. My palm presses all the buttons at once on the left side of the phone and changes the settings.
    Another problem I have is that the cellphone switches to speakerphone when I answer the phone, because they are the same buttons as the ring settings.
    Oh, the joys of living in a right-handed world.
