Discover Three New Apps That Could Help Reduce Your Chance of Being Victim in a Car Accident
When discussing technology’s role in reducing car accidents, the emphasis is often put on features the vehicle has. However, there are other ways in which technology can help reduce accidents. Today we will highlight a few examples. If you are involved in a car accident and need a free legal consultation from an experienced attorney, contact Law Offices of Fernando D.

- LifeSafer The number of car accidents caused by distracted driving has increased year after year for the last decade. Much of this involves drivers looking at their cell phones. LifeSafer is here to stop that. It prevents you from using your phone while you are driving by blocking all apps on your cell phone. If you have a teen driving your car, the app can also reward their safe driving and correct any dangerous driving they may have taken part in. You can also set the app to alert you when your teen has arrived at their destination, which can alleviate a lot of worry parents often experience.
- TrueMotion Family Once again, an excellent tool for parents of driving-aged children, TrueMotion measures how regularly a driver engages in unsafe driving behavior. While many people use it to track their teen’s safety, it can help adults too, by offering tips and suggestions on improving safety while driving.
- Drive Safely This app can help prevent accidents by making it unnecessary for drivers to take their eyes off the road to read text messages. Instead, the app reads them to the driver. The app can also return a text to the sender and let the said sender know that the person they are texting is driving and cannot respond right away. This is a 100% hands-free app that helps a driver avoid reaching for their phone to see what their latest text message says. It is compatible with radio transmitters and Bluetooth. Some similar apps are built into the interfaces of newer vehicles.
Apps Are Not the Only Way to Reduce Deadly Car Accidents
When the goal is providing deadly car accidents, more actions can be taken other than downloading a few apps. For example, speeding is a leading cause of fatal car accidents. Reducing your speed can both lower your chance of being in an accident in the first place and also help reduce the severity of the accident if you are in one.
