MacAdams sending out headsets
Texas is the latest state to propose some kind of hands free law for people driving while talking on their cellphones.
Concerns about the safety issues surrounding driving while talking on your mobile phone has prompted a California man to give hands free headsets away to drivers.
Matt MacAdams and his wife were driving home from visiting a friend in the hospital when they witnessed a horrific traffic accident. A truck collided with a car, killing the passenger in the car and injuring both drivers. One of the drivers was distracted by a cellphone, causing the fatal accident.
The experience prompted MacAdams to create the site http://www.freeheadset.org/. For the cost of shipping and handling, MacAdams will send you a headset that's compatible with your cellular phone.
The site turned into an immediate success. So much so there's a backlog. So this would be the time to order a headset for someone you love who drives and talks on the phone if you'd like to give this potentially life saving device to that person for the holidays.
MacAdams will be my guest on News Talk Online on Paltalk on Monday Nov. 5 at 5 PM New York time. To join in the conversation, go to www.paltalk.com/newstalk and click on the Join The Room button. There is no charge.
