The Best Apps to Prevent Texting While Driving


Distracted driving is now one of the most common causes of car accidents in the United States. People suffer injuries or even killed every day because of a collision related to distracted driving.

It is common knowledge that cellphones have played a significant role in the rise of distracted driving crashes. However, you might not be aware that several app developers have created ways to help make your smartphone a tool to combat distracted driving, instead of causing it. But with many apps available, you may be wondering which app is the best for you and your family.

The following are the best safe driving apps available for smartphone users in 2019:


Available for both iOS and Android, Drivemode helps drivers avoid distractions by blocking the ability to make and receive phone calls and texts while driving. When you drive over 15 MPH, the app automatically starts. If you have a teenage child using the app, you can have it notify you when he/she has the app deactivated.

If you are a parent who worries about their child texting and driving, LifeSaver provides them the power to lock their child’s phone while the car is in motion and be notified when your loved one safely arrives at his/her destination. The app also features a “Driver Portal” dashboard where parents can set up rewards for their kids when they demonstrate safe-driving behavior. Furthermore, commercial fleet managers can use LifeSaver to monitor their drivers’ behavior while they’re on duty. LifeSaver is only available for iOS

TrueMotion Family

Although this app doesn’t lock your phone while you’re driving, this app provides a “trip score” after each time you’ve driven. TrueMotion Family uses a rating scale to judge your overall drive, and determines exact moments where you may have been distracted driving. You can compare scores and show your family members’ location on the road in real-time.

OnMyWay is a well-known app that actually rewards you for not texting while driving by giving you points for each mile you drive over 10 MPH and don't text. You can spend your OnMyWay cash on gift cards, special deals, or even straight cash deposited into your PayPal or Venmo account.

Safe 2 Save

Safe 2 Save is similar to OnMyWay in that it rewards safe driving with points that can be redeemed at restaruants and other businesses. What makes Safe 2 Save unique is that you can still earn points while safely using other apps such as GPS apps and bluetooth music. It even gives you the ability to compete with friends and family to see who can earn the most points, thereby turning safe driving into a fun and friendly game.
