Mobile Apps that Promote Safe Driving

Distracted driving accounts for the majority of motor vehicle crashes. According to the US Department of Transportation, the use of cell phones while driving plays a role in 1.6 million motor vehicle collisions each year, causing 500,000 injuries and 6,000 deaths. Technology has grown to become both a problem and solution in the automotive industry.

A survey uncovered that nearly 90 percent of drivers use their smartphone while behind the wheel. Studies show for every hour a driver is on the road, they spend 3.5 minutes looking at their phone—if a driver takes their eyes off the road for at least two seconds, their chance of an accident increases by over 20 times.

Let’s say you look down at your phone for a total of five seconds while driving at 55mph. At that speed and time, that equals to driving the length of a football field with your eyes closed. Is responding to that text really worth it? Can it wait?

As much as it has been a problem, creators in the tech industry have worked to produce products and phone applications that help reduce distracted driving.
