DISTRACTED DRIVING APPS CAN HELP PROTECT YOU

Distacted-Drivig-app-rev.jpg

Distracted Driving Apps are available that can help you protect your teenagers and other family members. Given the fact that distracted driving is behind an estimated 25 percent of car crash fatalities, help with this problem can be a relief for concerned parents.

If you are an adult and find the temptation to text while driving hard to resist, you can also get apps for your phone.

DISTRACTED DRIVING APPS THAT MEET A VARIETY OF NEEDS

A number of apps are available and deciding which to go with can be challenging. You should do your own research, but here is how USA Today weighed in on distracted driving apps.

DRIVEMODE

DriveMode is an AT&T app that works on iPhone and Android mobile devices and here are its features:

  • The app automatically turns on when your car moves at more than 15 miles per our.
  • It silences text alerts.
  • It sends a canned response to the person texting (for example, "I'm driving and I will call you back.")
  • You can still access music and navigation or select contacts on your phone.
  • Parents can have the app notify them when their teenager disables the app.
  • You can set the app to turn off phone calls, text messages, games and social media.

Other carriers also have apps:

  • Sprint - Drive First App (Android only)
  • T-Mobile - DriveSmart App (iOS and Android)
  • Verizon - Driving Mode (Android only)

SAFEDRIVE

Some apps reward distraction-free driving by giving you points that you can use for retail purchases. An increasing number of retail companies are participating in this reward feature. SafeDrive has this feature and is available for both iOS and Android.

A few Android only apps turn text messages and emails into audio, such as DriveMode. Using Drivesafe.ly® (Android only) you can set the app to auto-respond.
