    "An average car weighs a little over a ton. You have something that isn’t paying any attention that is essentially a 1-ton weapon being driven by people who might not be paying attention," avid biker Zachary Lancaster said in response to distracted drivers.


    After doing a quick, online search, Channel 2 Action News found car mounts for as little as $4.

    Some drivers feel if they have an older car, they have to buy a newer one for the Bluetooth feature. Howard advises that drivers can buy a Bluetooth device to add to the visor inside the car, typically for $15 to $40, depending on the quality.
