In my home state a law was recently passed banning the use of cell phones for texting while driving. This means that if an officer sees you poking at a phone in your hand, you can get handed a fine for $500. Sure, there’s a lot of evidence that texting while driving is distracting and can cause accidents, but who are they to tell us what to do? That’s why we should stick it to the man and use one of these Steer Safe smartphone holders to text, and then quickly change to Google Maps when an officer stops you.
Just in case you didn’t catch on, I wasn’t being serious in the above. However, while I think that the creator had good intentions, I see these smartphone holders getting used a lot for texting, rather than for GPS functionality. If you really want one, it’s currently going through a round of funding over at Kickstarter, and you can pledge $30 to get one when (and if) they go into production.
