Driving Distracted? Try a Driving Safety App

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.

Testimonials

Attorneys you can trust. My daughter was in an automobile accident several months ago. She was really hurt and being only 19 really didn’t know how to take up for herself with regards to the other persons insurance company. They continued to call her and pressure her to accept their offer. Having known Glen Wieland for some time, I recommended that she contact his firm. What good advice that has turned out to be. They have watched out for her and made sure that she receives the medical attention that she needs. I feel so much better knowing that she is being properly represented.

Al Hilado was successful in winning my very difficult case. He was very approachable the entire length of the case. It took over 2 years. He and his staff kept me up to date and whenever I had a question he was very easy to reach by phone or email. I am very grateful to him as he has helped my family tremendously. I will absolutely contact him again if I ever need help in the future.
