Answer your cellphone without causing a multi-car pileup

First, let me say that I generally feel that using a cellphone while driving is a bad idea. Any distraction, no matter how minor, can be fatal at highway speeds.

With that being said, here's a tip for more safely and quickly answering your cellphone while driving. Before getting into your vehicle, take your phone off your belt, out of your pocket or purse and place it into a shirt pocket, a cupholder or somewhere safe on your car's console.

When the phone rings now you can answer it without having to squirm around in your seat, remove a seat belt, or look into a purse.

Now, hang up and drive.
