Will These Apps Curb Distracted Driving Risks?

Multiple safety advocacy groups often resort to fear to urge drivers to stop driving while distracted. But when it comes to finding a solution to the distracted driving problem, only those who are able to create an accessible solution are the ones being positive about their approach.

Distracted driving is a serious problem, but it didn’t begin with phone use.

Distracting activities include using a phone to text, call, send emails, and take photos. But phone use is not the only type of distraction. Talking to passengers, handling children or pets, or even eating and drinking may also lead to distracted driving crashes.

In the United States, over 1,100 people are injured in auto crashes daily, with more than 8 people dying in the same type of crashes also daily. If drivers are serious about their safety and the safety of others, they will think twice before allowing a distraction to ruin their lives.

But what happens when they can’t control themselves?

Many experts believe that teens are the most vulnerable to distracted driving risks. That’s why many parents are resorting to apps that help to block text messages, phone calls, and other notifications while the vehicle is in motion. Many of these apps are interesting to parents because they receive reports concerning the teen driver’s behavior. Many of these apps will also alert the parent if the teen has deleted or disabled the app on their phones.

To many safety advocates, the use of these types of apps may help teens to stay safe through this difficult phase of their lives.

But the apps can be valuable to any other smartphone user as well.

Whether you’re a teen or an older driver, using a phone while behind the wheel may lead to serious consequences. Using apps could help to avoid some of these problems.
