(fmr). Firefighter Shalin sez - Plantronics offer is a bad idea: public safety and lawsuits...
As a former volunteer firefighter that tended to wrecks fairly often - I'm thinkin' that the Plantronics deal is just encouraging dangerous behavior. Now I know, I know - one *can* safely drive and talk on the cell phone with practice, but apparently it's been judged that enough people cannot. So yeah, I'm thinking that a class action or similar category of lawsuit will be filed or threatened at some point.
I mean, what a cheap and low way to get brand recognition out there... Also, consider the concept of a 1500lbs mass traveling erratically at 50+mph - at you! Sounds like a sizable weapon to me. I'd would rather have it acting as a means of orderly transport only.
Be safe out there and have fun,
p.s. - Fire Chief Kevin and any other public safety folks, feel free to chime in here...
