Distracted Driving and iPhone Application

There now is an iPhone application on distracted driving; developed by Tony Scotti and associates.
We have developed an iPhone Application on Distracted Driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) driver distractions are the leading cause of most vehicle crashes and near-crashes. The App came about when we looked at a study released by the NHTSA and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI). The study discovered that 80% of crashes and 65% of near-crashes involve some form of driver distraction – and the distraction occurred within three seconds before the vehicle crash! For those in High Risk Security that number “three seconds” is familiar. It is the “Kill Zone”.

Somebody said prevention is better than cure. So why not use something which is more useful like this application http://www.drivesafe.ly/. It is in my mobile which enables my mobile to read text message and emails in just one click.

Start using it and you will never have to worry about distraction due to phone. It has many more features like auto responder and short hand reading.

Get it for your phone http://www.drivesafe.ly/
