The Great Bluetooth Giveaway March 28-April 1st

March 25, 2011

Don't let this happen to you. Turn it off or use a headset!

The distracted driving thing – you know, talking, texting, ipod fiddling, GPS maneuvering, status updating, tweeting, whatever – while behind the wheel is a train wreck waiting to happen. Or in this situation, a car wreck.

CT DOT Highway Safety is starting the final phase of the federal initiative to Stop Distracted Driving, focusing exclusively on the Hartford area.  Phone in One Hand, Ticket in the Other is similar to the Click it or Ticket summer crackdown; cops and troopers aim to ticket every driver with a cell phone in use behind the wheel.

Let’s face it: teens aren’t the only guilty ones. We all do it and we all need to stop. But until tragedy hits, few pledge to never use their cells while driving. To never text. To turn it off.

If you can’t put it down and turn it off, then use a headset every single time that key goes in the engine.

So here’s what Key Hyundai is going to do.

It’s not a lot, but it’s a start.

Come by Key Hyundai Manchester/Vernon or Wireless Zone West Hartford and we’ll give you a free Bluetooth headset. All you need to do is pledge, pinky-swear, spit-swap promise to drive distraction free. To turn off the phone in the car, and if you can’t, to use the Bluetooth. Not some of the time – all of the time.

Bluetooth in the Ear, Hands on the Wheel, Eyes on the Road

Key Hyundai is giving away 100 Bluetooth headsets to the first 100 people who pledge to drive distraction free and mean it. And my friends at Wireless Zone West Hartford are doing the same. 100 for Key Hyundai, 100 for Wireless Zone West Hartford.

Get a FREE Bluetooth Headset with a Pledge to Drive Distraction Free

March 28 – April 1, 2011 (as supplies last)

Key Hyundai Manchester at 21 Hartford Turnpike, Vernon

Wireless Zone West Hartford, at 712 North Main Street @Bishops Corner

Stop in, and promise to drive distraction free. Promise to use this headset not just sometimes, but all the time, and mean it. Pressure your friends and family to do the same. Nobody wants to be a statistic, especially one that was completely avoidable.

Stop by Key Hyundai Manchester/Vernon or Wireless Zone West Hartford at Bishops Corner. Sign a Pledge, get a Bluetooth, and use it.
