Binary Fusion has launched an application for the Android phone that allows the user to set his or her phone to automatically respond to texts and phone calls
Ogden, UT (PRWEB) September 20, 2010
There are many distractions on the road, including construction or hazardous and drunk drivers. Several cities and states throughout the country have even banned texting or talking on the phone while driving. A new application for the Android phone now gives drivers a way to automatically silence incoming text messages, and/or phone calls while driving. The “Drive Safe” app can also send a text message reply to callers and texters to let them know you are on the road.
Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show 5,870 people died in 2008 from car accidents, and more than 515,000 others were injured. 28% of all accidents in 2008 were caused by drivers between the ages of 18 and 29 that were texting while driving.
50% of teenage drivers admit to texting while driving. But it’s not just teenagers that are distracted on the road: 81% of the population admits to texting while driving. Texting can slow a driver’s reaction time by 30% and some experts say texting while driving is a greater impairment than being on drugs or drinking while driving.
A new company called Binary Fusion has launched an application for the Android phone that allows the user to set his or her phone to automatically respond to texts and phone calls by setting a speed configuration on the app. For example, if the user sets the speed to 15 miles per hour, when he or she is driving 15 MPH or higher, all texts and calls are silenced and the automatic response turns on.
