Stop Texting While Driving In Your Car Or Truck With A Phone App

Cell Cease(TM) Phone Application Wants You and Your Teen Driver To Keep Your Eyes On The Road….

I’ve written to you guys before expressing my concern with kids and even adults texting while driving. It’s never been a more serious issue than right now. In addition to CD’s, passengers, makeup, food etc., teens can be easily distracted. Texting has become a very fast, easy way to communicate these days. I have friends that don’t even call me anymore. If they want something they just text me, and I’m ok with that, but not while they are driving. A new cell phone application has decided to tackle this distraction in the car head on and I think it’s awesome! It was designed specifically with teens in mind but I believe it may even be an awesome tool for adults to use. Cell Cease(TM) will prohibit your teens from texting while they are driving. It will also allow them to continue to receive phone calls from approved phone numbers, which you as the parent can completely control. It will also always allow calls incoming and outgoing from 911 so no need to worry about that one.

“According to a new study by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, 25% percent of U.S. teens aged 16 to 17 who have cell phones admitted to texting while driving, and twice as many say they have been in the car with someone that has. This and other driving distractions have been the cause of a reported 5,870 fatalities and 515,000 injuries in the past year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Texting has been found to be so dangerous, professional truck and bus drivers who “text and drive” can be subject to civil or criminal penalties of up to $2,750.” Cell Cease(TM)

Keep in mind that since this application is constantly running it will eat your battery life up. If you or your child is just a passenger and not the driver they are still unable to use their phones as long as the phone is moving faster than 5 mph. I think it’ll be very interesting to see how this works out for folks.
Let me know what you guys think and drive safely out there.
