San Francisco, California (PRWEB) April 08, 2013
To discourage texting while driving, the safety team at AutoInsuranceEZ.com has developed a mobile phone application that will bring an end to the texting while driving epidemic. Available for the Android market, No Texting & Driving app will change the way people think about driving and texting.
Taking your eyes off the road, even for a moment can be fatal. Texting while driving is a dangerous practice that claims the lives of motorists every year. While teens are most likely to send and receive text messages while driving, people of all ages engage in this risky practice.
It can be difficult to resist the urge to answer a text while stopped at a light or waiting in traffic. Studies have shown, however, that even a brief distraction can cause serious accidents or death. According to the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, drivers who are texting are 23 times more likely to be involved in a crash. AutoInsuranceEZ.com, a leading car insurance comparison portal, hopes to eliminate these staggering statistics with its new No Texting & Driving app.
The launch, announced on the company’s blog, means that users can now download No Texting & Driving App directly from the Google Play, formerly known as the Android Market.
The way the app works is simple. The driver simply tells the app the start and end time of the trip. While the app is activated, the phone will not send through incoming texts. Instead, senders will receive a pre-recorded message that the receiver is unavailable. When the trip is complete, the driver can simply retrieve his missed texts.
Another interesting feature of the No Texting & Driving app for Android is the speed control feature. Using information from the phone's GPS, the application will disable texting when the car reaches a certain speed. This setting can be adjusted to reflect the driver's routine and road conditions. With this feature, the driver will be able to pull over and send a quick message, but will be unable to text while the car is in motion.
This application is a dream come true for parents of teens. Several developers have designed apps that register when a teen is speeding and send an alert to the parents. No Texting & Driving is another tool in the fight to keep teens from texting behind the wheel.
With the majority of Americans reporting being a passenger in a car with a distracted driver, this app is a lifesaver. AutoInsuranceEZ hopes that not only will drivers find the app useful, they will become accustomed to not texting and driving. After using the app a few times, drivers will find that waiting until the end of the trip to text is not a major inconvenience.
