There are three main types of distraction:
Visual — taking your eyes off the road
Manual — taking your hands off the wheel
Cognitive — taking your mind off what you’re doing
Distracted driving is any non-driving activity a person engages in that has the potential to distract him or her from the primary task of driving and increase the risk of crashing.
While all distractions can endanger drivers’ safety, texting is the most alarming because it involves all three types of distraction.
The No Texting and Driving App curbs distracted driving by not only AUTO-RESPONDING to those who text you while you are en route, but also by READING YOUR TEXTS ALOUD so you can keep your focus on the road! You can even customize your own auto-response to whatever you like.

The application is free to use on your phone, and comes with the option to control another device. Moms and dads: You can ensure that your teen driver isn’t using their phones to text while they drive. Coaches: Now you can make sure your whole team is safe when they drive to the tournament.

Why Thumb Tied? Here is a list of features:
*Easy to use and understand interface

*Pair with another user’s device with the Thumb Tied application and control when the app is enabled (subscription needed)
*Notification if Thumb Tied is disabled on the other user’s device

1. Silence the phone.
2. Select the speed at which you would like Distract Shield to activate, either in Miles/hour or in Km/hour.
