New App Locks Your Phone
While You Are Driving

Distraction Prevention is a new app that locks your mobile while you are driving. The app uses your mobile’s sat nav system to detect when it is travelling faster than 4 mph and then disables all calls, texts, emails and social media. Romex, the developer of the app, anticipates that it will help reduce the number of motor vehicle accidents, which could then contribute to reduced motor insurance premiums.

While the function of Distraction Prevention is not a new concept for apps (as there are several other similar products), it does emphasise a growing campaign to keep mobiles out of the hands of motorists. The reason for this push is that studies have shown that motorists who use mobiles behind the wheel are slower to recognise and react to hazards. In fact, mobile phone usage was a contributing factor in 21 fatal road accidents and 84 serious accidents in 2014, according to the most recent research.

And, in case the threat of damage and injury is not enough to prevent you from using your mobile while driving, it is also illegal. If you are caught using a handheld phone while driving, you will receive three penalty points on your licence and a fine of £100. So, to avoid injury, vehicular damage and fines, wait until you arrive at your destination to pick up your mobile.
