App Prevents Texting & Driving

I posted yesterday about it being Distracted Driving Awareness Week and a blogger sent me a tip on an app you can download that prevents you from texting or web browsing while driving.

StopTxting® is a speed regulated texting application that uses the built-in GPS sensor in smartphones to prevent users from texting, emailing or web browsing when traveling over 10 mph.

Yes, there's an override button so you COULD cheat if you're that determined, but it's billed as a way for passengers in a vehicle to continue to use their phones.

Here's a link to StopTxting if you want to check it out. Maybe for your teenage drivers?
