3 Apps for Distracted Driving

distracted driving

Do you have the bad habit of using your phone when you’re not supposed to? Try these apps to minimize your distracted driving and become a better driver!

Do you have the bad habit of checking your smartphone when you’re driving? It is often smartphones that lead to distracted driving, but a few smartphone apps aim to do just the opposite. These apps are designed to get drivers to focus less on their phones and more on the road. These apps will help you to develop safer driving habits. Plus, if you have a daughter or son who is constantly glued to their phones, you can give these apps a try to pass on safe driving habits to them.

Top Apps to Prevent Distracted Driving

  • Vokul. If you need to stay connected during your long commute, then Vokul is the app for you. This app allows you to talk on the phone, send emails, find songs, and even post to Facebook and Twitter all with voice commands! This hands-free technology allows you to stay connected while also keeping your eyes on the road.
  • DriveScribe. Take your safe driving habits a step further by using an app that coaches you on your driving skill. This is an especially great app for teenagers or those who want to pay particular attention to honing their driving skills. The app will block incoming calls and texts and let you know when you’re going over the speed limit or if you’ve broken any other driving laws. Parents can also sign up for updates to check on their teen’s driving. And the best part? If you’re a good driver, you accrue points that can be exchanged for gift cards! This is a great way to motivate teenagers to put down their phones and focus on the road.
  • Text Limit. TextLimit reduces distracted driving by displaying an alert message if the phone is used for calls and texts over a certain driving speed. Parents can set the minimum speed that the phone will start sending these messages. Parents can also set a top speed that, if exceeded, will send a message to the parent’s phone.
