Cell phone app designed to block calls and texts while driving
Colorado (WQOW) - A
new cellphone app could make it safer for drivers, especially teenagers.
The Android app, called LifeBeforeText,
is designed to block calls and texts while driving. Parents can install it on
their teenagers phones for them. If a teenage driver disables the app, the
parents will get an e-mail. If the app is deleted, an e-mail can also be sent
to an insurance agent who may be giving the teen driver a discount for having
the app installed. A Colorado
father says he designed the app with his young triplets in mind.
"The thought of them
driving in today's world, they're 8, so they're 8 years away from driving, and there's
so many distractions and meaningless deaths on the road caused by people
texting," said Troy Orner, the creator of LifeBeforeText.
The app costs $3.98 cents to install
on an Android phone.
