Benefits of Applications that Reduce Phone Use
One of the provisions of this policy is the use of applications that discourage picking of phone calls while driving. This software allows drivers to keep their hands on their wheels and their eyes on the road by converting their messages into audio. The app reads the messages and then informs them to the driver (Jolly, 2016). This enables him to hear all the messages. While traditional blocking is often effective, it is often better to understand what other people want to say to the driver. Sometimes, it could be an important message (Jolly, 2016). This system also automatically identifies the name of the individual seeking to contact the driver a message. In the process, the system lets the message senders a notification that the receiver is driving and cannot attend to the message right away (Jolly, 2016). Currently, this app is also undergoing modifications to have the capability of notifying the parents who seek to know how their children are driving. However, it can also be utilized by anybody for blocking incoming calls, emails, and texts while driving. The most attractive and efficacious feature of the app is that one can never forget to turn it on, since it will utilize the GPS feature of the cell phone to determine if one is driving.
Road crashes are some of the leading causes of deaths for both adults and teenagers in the United States. Deaths and injuries arising from road carnages are partly brought by widespread use of cell phones while driving. In this respect, people who make phone calls or send text messages while driving. Standardizing legislations and policies aimed at discouraging the use of cell phones while driving has various benefits. First, these rules have been effective in reducing road carnages in areas where they have been enforced. Therefore, it would be beneficial to apply them across the country. In addition, these legislations help to reduce the cellphone-using behavior, thus minimizing road accidents.
