Your safety while driving is a priority for us, and minimising distractions from your phone is a key way to keep you focused on the road.
The NZTA, AA and Police recommend you put your phone away or turn it off.
If you need to stay connected, we recommend using a hands-free kit to answer calls received on your mobile while driving. There are also options that will block ALL notifications to your iPhone or Android, while letting your contacts know you are driving.
