Orange, California (PRWEB) June 20, 2013
(California) - Teenagers think they are invincible, that bad things can’t possibly happen to them. Like texting & driving - - - what’s the big deal? Distracted Driving has become a dangerous epidemic on America’s roadways! In 2009, over 5,500 people died from Distracted Driving & 1/3 of those deaths were attributed directly to texting while driving according to the NHTSB.
Richard Barrier creator of the Android phone app TXT ME L8R has developed a solution to this ever growing problem. TXT ME L8R is simple to use, customizable & easy to set up on your teenager’s phone. It simply removes the temptation to check for texts, Facebook statuses, tweets, etc…by locking the phone from presenting them to you until your car is no longer moving. The app automatically responds for you by sending a message to the sender saying “TXT ME L8R – I’m Driving”. In the event that the phone goes over the maximum speed limit an email is sent to the parent with the speed, time & location of the phone.
It’s not just teens; adults are guilty of Distracted Driving as well. TXT ME L8R has a pledge page on their website TXTMEL8R.com for parents. Because they have put TXTMEL8R on their teenager’s phone the parent also pledges to not text & drive making them accountability partners.
Families, friends, acquaintances, neighbors & virtual strangers are all affected when an accident or death occurs due to Distracted Driving. The empty chair at the dinner table, the graduation that will never happen, the dreams that will never be fulfilled…all because of technology & it’s temptations. TXT ME L8R is a solution to a very sad, dangerous problem. For more information visit http://www.TXTMEL8R.com or to schedule an interview with Richard 1-88-TXTMEL8R or Richard(at)TXTMEL8R(dot)com
