Luckily, numerous products are available to keep your eyes on the road while dealing with everyday distractions. From cheaper alternatives to worthy investments, these devices will help keep you safer on the road - and as states continue to adopt hands-free laws, you might end up getting a ticket without owning one of these gadgets.
