4 apps to prevent you from driving while distracted

Distracted driving is a much larger issue than most people realize. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that every day, over 1,000 people suffer injuries as a result of distracted driving. Approximately nine people die every day as a result. 

One of the biggest causes for distraction is smartphones. Some drivers do not see the harm in quickly responding to a text or looking something up. However, taking your eyes off the road for a few seconds can still lead to an accident. If you do not know if you can trust yourself to not look at your phone, then consider downloading one of the following apps to prevent you from becoming tempted. 

1. Live2Txt

All you have to do is turn this app on before you start driving and you will not receive any texts or calls until you turn it back off. In the event someone texts you while the app is on, he or she will receive an automatic message stating you cannot respond because you are behind the wheel. 

2. Drive First

Created by Sprint, this app automatically turns itself on once you start traveling at a certain speed. That means you do not have to worry about forgetting to activate it. If you need to use a map while driving, then you can still access one of those apps, but texts do not come through. 

3. SafeDrive

Do you feel like earning rewards for safe driving? The SafeDrive app automatically turns itself on once you are moving above a certain speed limit. You then start earning points toward discounts offered by various companies that have partnered with the app. 

4. Focus

Focus provides you with gentle reminders throughout your drive to not look at your phone. It activates on its own once you start traveling. To stay on the app's good side, you will want to make sure you stay off your phone while you are on the road.
