New mobile app aims to deter texting while driving
By KMOV Web Producer
(KMOV) – A new Blackberry app aims to kill your urge to text while driving.
The new AT&T app stops all incoming texts and stores them until you’re finishing driving.
Drive Mode also sends out a pre-typed response that explains you’re driving and will answer back later and AT&T launched the new app with a YouTube video.
Under pressure from lawmakers and safety advocates, companies like AT&T have been looking for a safer solution to our growing addiction to texting and driving. Several states including Illinois have banned it, and Missouri’s ban only young drivers.
The new anti-texting and driving app is free to download in Blackberry App World.
