Many of the rules regarding the use of gadgets and the behavior of gadget owners are more of a recommendation that can prevent certain accidents, or that can make transportation in urban and rural areas more enjoyable. Some of the mentions in the guide are, however, prohibitions of the law, especially for drivers.
We will divide the tips and rules into three categories, for those who use gadgets on foot, those who use bicycles and / or other light vehicles and motor vehicles.
It should be self-evident that standing with one eye on a screen leads to certain risks, such as entering other pedestrians, obstructing curbs or accidentally crossing the street when the traffic light is red.
Among other tips that would increase your safety when using tablets and phones, we can mention listening to music at a low volume, to hear certain noises such as horns or warnings of a worker about freshly poured asphalt, for example.
If you plan to use the phone to answer calls, it is preferable to use gadgets such as handsets for one ear, as you will have the other ear free to hear the surrounding noises.
Another useful gadget is the Smart Watch, with which you can take calls or read information from your favorite applications, without taking your phone or tablet out of your bag or pocket.
Protection against thieves
As advice to protect your property against people with bad intentions, we can say the classic "Do not display your phones or other valuables" that you have met quite often, on posters posted by the Police in many places in big cities.
At the same time, we recommend that you keep the phones in front pockets, and if you benefit from zippers, all the better. Do not underestimate the clever fingers of pickpockets and be on guard in crowded places, especially in public transport!
