Driving Distracted? Try a Driving Safety App

By: Admin

Safety App

We have covered the dangers of texting while driving in the past, but have never been able to share much advice on prevention other than simply turning off your phone while on the road. With many wanting to keep their phone on “just in case,” a strict turn-off policy will not work. With the use of a safety app, you may have the solution you have been looking for.

A driving safety app can:

  • Auto-Reply for You: Many apps allow for an auto-reply feature that detects when your vehicle is moving and sends an away message for you, just like your email would while on vacation. Using GPS technology, these apps can detect movement and automatically enable an the auto-reply feature so you never have to worry about leaving your friends or colleagues hanging.
  • Stop the Distractions: Nearly every safety app mutes all alerts, from emails to social media notification. As they say, out of sight, out of mind. Even the split second it takes to see who just texted you may be enough to make a fatal mistake.
  • Tell on Teens: Some apps put the power in the hands of parents, alerting Mom or Dad via text or email when their son or daughter unlocks their phone while on the road. Surely, this would not be a popular safety app among teens, but it can act as a great safety net while they build their responsible driving habits.

There are countless options for every need, but whichever method you choose, we cannot stress how important it is to drive with your mind on one thing: the road. It is also important to instill the value of safe driving, and safe practices in general, to your children and grandchildren. Teaching safe habits young just may save future generations a lot of money, stress and, potentially, even lives.

Mr Hilado is definitely on top of his game. I hired him for my Social Security Disability appeal and finally got my benefits awarded to me in two months. It is hard to find attorneys these days like him. He is very honest, and knowledgeable. I plan on referring him to friends and family.
