Do you use a phone while driving?

I know it is very tempting in this era of instant communication to think about answering your cell phone call while you are driving, and unfortunately I still see many a weaving driver on their phone but everyone knows it’s dangerous to use a phone and drive, so why do motorists still do it?

I live in South Africa and we have one of the highest incidents of road accidents in the world, many of them fatal. I recently came across an App that is trying to get us ALL compliant and safe,  SafeDrive  – www.getsafedrive.com

The great thing I think is that this app  encourages good driving habits with rewards in the real world. It uses a point system that offers discounts on products and services when drivers refrain from touching their for the duration of a trip.

If they can’t resist checking their device the app warns them that they will lose any points gained for the journey if they choose to continue.

App users can also track their trip histories and compare their results with friends.

I hope this app takes off world-wide as with such positive reinforcement just maybe we can all stop using a phone while driving!

SafeDrive can be downloaded from Android and Windows phones, although a release date for iOS devices is yet to be announced.

Drive safely till the next time
