Mobile devices are more of a distraction to motorists than a screaming child and feeling stressed.*
A single beep of a phone diverts motorists’ gaze away from the road four times longer (2.30 seconds vs. 0.48 seconds) compared to standard driving conditions even when unanswered.
Surrey based insurance company esure has given Safe Drive, Stay Alive (SDSA) rights to their DriveOFF app, which will prevent your phone from distracting you while you drive. Once you reach 10mph the app will automatically turn off all notifications and incoming calls and display a static screensaver of your choice, instead of your distracting phone screen.
