Do you use the phone in your car? Do you regularly make calls in between meetings and whilst commuting in the car? Would you rather take away the worry of missing calls and the stress of multi-tasking and just enjoy the ride?
Driving whilst using the phone is illegal. A new driving law came into effect on 1 March 2017, and it can now cost a £200 fine and 6 points on your driving licence.

Face for Business gives you six steps to avoid getting points on your driving licence...
Step 1 – Have the will power and confidence to switch your phone to silent once you’re at the steering wheel.
Step 2 – Plan in advance. Let people know that you will be unavailable to speak with until you’ve reached your destination.
Step 3 – Set a message up on your voicemail which tells your callers that you are driving and shall return their call once you can.
Step 4 – Set up your phone to divert back to your office, for any other members of staff to answer on your behalf.
Step 5 – Use the time at the wheel to focus on the task to hand. Enjoy the journey. Have patience, be courteous. Have good road etiquette! You’ll find the time in your car less of an ordeal.
Step 6 – Invest in a telephone answering service that can complement your own working practices, by having a back-up telephone answering service for your business. Unanswered and overflow calls will be diverted and your own dedicated PA will answer your calls in your company name. Our service can be set up within a few hours, normally, and will save you the stress, worry and cost of your licence!
Phew! No more missed calls, no more stress and worry, a nice clean licence and more importantly a great, safe drive.
