Road Safety During Winter Storms

The Weather Channel reports that this winter weather and snow won’t stop anytime soon. A lot of people think that the media is making too big of a deal about the snow and record breaking freezing temperatures. You just have to take it slow on the roads and you’ll be fine…right? That’s what we tell ourselves. We don’t want to be that person who chickens out because of a little snow and doesn’t make it to work. Even worse, some people can’t afford to miss work because of hard economic times.

Then you hear aobut the multicar pile up in Indiana that has killed several people and injured dozens. It really makes you think about being safe on the roads. It’s moments like these that you do want to have an emergency kit in your car. You don’t want to be stranded in your car for hours in the bitter cold. You want to make sure you have the essentials (food, water, warmth) and you want to also make sure you can communicate with family and friends and call for help.

That’s what so many people forget to think about–protect your phone. With the impact of an accident, unless you protect your phone, it can be damaged from banging around your cupholder. When you need it the most, it will be on the floorboard, out of reach. That’s a smartphone holder is your best option. Your phone is safe, secure, and within reach, even in a winter storm, multicar pileup.

Safe Driving During Winter Storms

The East coast is getting hit with yet another snow storm. As nice as it would be to have a snow day, some of us are not so lucky. We have to drive on the compacted snow and iced over roads and bridges. Speaking from experience, I know how dangerous it is. I, however, have something that most drivers do not have.

I have the MobiValet iPhone car mount. It fits my iPhone 5c perfectly. I have it adhered to side center console wall right below the radio and next to my legs. As people are sliding on the ice, slamming their breaks, their phones go flying to the floorboard or get banged around a cup holder. But my smartphone stays put in one place. It doesn’t get damaged, and I have it within reach should I need it.

Now is the time of year when you do think about emergencies on the road, especially if you commute. Always have a pair of walking shoes, flashlight, blanket, some water, granola bars, and a smartphone car mount. We don’t think about our cellphones, but since they play such an important role in calling for help, you have protect  it. Keep your phone safe when you drive, snug as a bug in a MobiValet.

Valentine’s Day Gift for Him

Before too long, everyone is going to be bombarded with red hearts, chocolates, flowers, jewelry and all things Valentine’s Day. It’s time to think about what to get that special someone…and we’re talking about your boyfriends and husbands. They’re the hardest to shop for anyway. What do you get a man for the day dedicated to love? Flowers?  It really depends on the guy. But there is one gift they’ll love and not even know it.

smartphone car mountIf your guy is a gadget guy, with the latest smartphone and tablet, then the MobiValet smartphone car mount is perfect! For the good guy on the go, working hard, who lives on his phone, it’s the perfect gift. After all, the only way he remembers important things is because of reminders he sets on his phone.  The last thing you want is for his phone to get banged up or a cracked screen because it was thrown on the floorboard or thrown around too harshly in the cup holder.

The MobiValet smartphone car mount for you guy protects the phone, but it also keeps him safe. He’ll be less likely to text while driving because the MobiValet covers the front (and back) of the smartphone. Should something happen and he’s involved in an accident, instead of his phone will not be on the floorboard out of reach. It will be at arms length so he can easily call for help.

No more spending money on cheesy Valentine’s Day gifts for him. Let me do cheesy for you. You can be practical with Valentine’s Day this. He’ll really appreciate that.

Smartphone Car Mounts in Extreme Weather

We’ve seen some extreme weather in 2014 already. With the polar vortex earlier, now more Winter storms in the pacific northwest, I can’t help but think of vehicle safety. High winds, snow, rain–driving is dangerous. Not all of us have the luxury of staying home. We still have to go to work.

As a commuter, I dread driving in bad weather conditions. Black ice, high winds–that’s just asking for trouble. I’ve been stuck in the snow for three (yes three) hours in the snow or on a bridge because of ice. My car has spun out and hydroplaned. And when that happened, my phone was the first to go flying on the floorboard. Needless to say that was not helpful as I was reaching to call for help.

Now I have the MobiValet smartphone car mount, driving in the snow is not so terrible. Instead of worrying about my iPhone, I can focus on driving safely. And should my car spin out of control, I know that when I stop, I can reach for my phone and make necessary calls. The smartphone car mount protects your phone with nicely structured walls. Even when you’re swerving, your phone stays in one place. You can adhere it within arms reach. Speaking from experience, that comes in handy.

So whether you’re experiencing nasty weather now or want to be safe in the future, a smartphone car mount is exactly what you need for piece of mind and safety.

Smartphone Car Mounts for 2014!

It’s that time of year when we start looking back on 2013 and make plans to make 2014 a better year. What did you do in 2013 that you absolutely loved and want to continue doing? What did you do that maybe you’re not so proud of? Now is the time to ponder on 2013.

As a mom and professional, I am pretty proud of a few things. For starters, I did convince several people I know that MobiValet is the best iPhone car mount. My mom and brother both received them as gifts. I was riding in the car with my brother, who just got his when I told him to not put his phone in my cup holder. My coffee needed to go there instead. He quickly quipped that I needed another MobiValet smartphone car mount for my front passengers. He is right! I do need another.

Which brings me to another point. My brother is a college student, working a pizza delivery boy to put himself through school. I got him his MobiValet to promote safety while driving. I’m proud to say that he uses it and admits his smartphone is less of a distraction. He is safer in his car with the MobiValet.

I did so well getting my mom and brother their smartphone car mounts as gifts, I’m planning on continuing that into next year. I know another soon to be mom who commutes to work quite a bit. Another family member drives quite a bit to see me and other family members. And I’m probably going to buy one and donate it a silent auction.

Whatever you decide for 2014, make sure that you’re safe. Keep your smartphone in a safe place while you drive. And whatever you do, don’t text and drive!

Happy New Year!
