Distracted Driving Research  

Distraction Driving Prevention 

According to a 2020 CDOT survey of Colorado drivers, 30% of respondents agree that blocking calls and messages while driving is a top way to prevent people from using their phones while driving. Although a majority of respondents have a “Do Not Disturb” feature in their phone, about half have never used it. Learn how to “Get Turned On” through this quick video.

If you don’t have a way to help prevent the use of your cell phone while driving, check out these distracted driving prevention apps:

Kick Your Killer Habit - Sept17

AT&T Drive Mode

AT&T Drive Mode is an easy-to-use and user-friendly app solution that can be set up to automatically activate whenever the driver is traveling over 15 mph. The app will block incoming phone calls and text messages, and for AT&T customers, will send an auto-reply message. Appealing to parents, notifications can be enabled alerting parents if their teen turns off DriveMode.


Life Saver

Life Saver

Using a combination of the phone's GPS and accelerometer, LifeSaver is a free app that detects when your car is in motion and presents a block (Android) or deterrent 'Keep your eyes on the road' notification (iPhone) on the driver's smartphone. Through the LifeSaver Driver Portal, parents and loved ones can monitor drivers, receive notifications if the app is disabled and set up customizable safe driving rewards.

True Motion Family

True Motion Family

TrueMotion Family provides an overall snapshot of your family's driving habits, using a simplified ‘trip score' to evaluate moments of distracted driving and overall risky driving behavior. The app provides at-a-glance information of where family members are driving and a trip history allows you to pinpoint exactly where distracted driving occurred.

Safe Ride

SafeRide

The SafeRide app works best when paired with your vehicle's Bluetooth entertainment system to detect when your phone enters the vehicle. The app also works with after-market Bluetooth audio connections. When beginning to drive, the app will mute audio notifications and access to the screen and buttons will be blocked. Although access to the phone is blocked while driving, the phone will remain operational and messages and alerts will be available upon arrival.

Driving Detective

Driving Detective

Driving Detective is a free Android app that automatically detects when your car is in motion and turns on your phone's "Do Not Disturb" mode, blocking incoming notifications while you drive. Normal phone operation will resume after you leave your car. While Androids already have a "Do Not Disturb" mode to block texts and notifications, there was previously no way for this feature to activate automatically while driving. Driving Detective provides this functionality to Android users.
