“According to the Surface Transportation Policy Project, single mothers spend 75 minutes a day driving, while married women with children drive 66 minutes a day. Eight out of ten women are radio listeners.” – Statistic taken from Mom 3.0 by Maria Bailey
66 minutes A DAY.
I have to tell you that, on most days, my “drive time” is 0 minutes a day. Or maybe 15 minutes a day. Max.
But I may be a bit unconventional in this area.
Or it may be because I have two little ones (a 2 year old and a 3 month old). Couple that with the fact that I run a work-from-home business…and it all amounts to “staying in” quite a bit.
That said, when I am on the road or when we vacation as a family, it sure is handy to have a Jabra SP700 bluetooth speakerphone ($99.99) in the vehicle.
The Jabra SP700 allows you to make and take calls safely and easily. The little device even “announces” when a call is coming in. It’s super simple to set up – you just clip it on to your sun visor and go. The clip also allows you to move it from car-to-go…or even into your house…with ease. As an added bonus, you can play all your own tunes and podcasts from your phone, instead of listening to ads, self-absorbed DJs, and swaggering talk show hosts. Cool, don’t you think?
You can read about all of the other benefits and technical specifications over at Jabra’s website, but – essentially – it’s a useful device that will help keep you safe on the road…whether you drive 15 minutes a day or 75 minutes a day.
YOUR TURN: How many minutes a day do you spend behind the wheel? When you’re in the car, what do you listen to – politics, pop, or pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake?
