A growing danger on roadways today is distracted driving – particularly texting while driving. It is a dangerous habit that more than 44% of teenagers admit to partaking in, according to a 2013 study by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Drive the District, an innovative digital destination powered by General Motors, recently explored several mobile apps that help curb the temptation to text behind the wheel. While some apps are hands-free alternatives to typing out a text, others remove the option to compose a message until the car slows below a certain speed. Either way, drivers’ eyes are off of their phones and back on the road.
