Smartphone app claims to eradicate driver distractions
UK car insurance company Esure has released an app that prevents drivers from being distracted while behind the wheel
DriveOff, the new app from Esure, switches off all other phone apps and prevents incoming calls and texts – ensuring no distractions while you’re on the road.
Recent research reveals that 84 percent of drivers use some sort of gadget while driving, with a 23 per cent longer reaction time to hazards when drivers are trying to send a text.
The app is available free for Android devices via Google Play. No word on iPhone availability yet, however we’re told that Esure is hoping it will appear soon.
