  1. In Nebraska, news crews rode along with a 17-year-old girl and her parents as they test drove a new anti-texting and driving app: Detext (http://www.Detext.com). Detext is a free safe driving mobile app for Android that actually takes over this teen's phone & disables her text messaging whenever it detects that she's in motion!

    Detext is a new mobile app that can be used to restrict a drivers' ability to text behind the wheel. The Detext app, available free in the Google Marketplace, utilizes the phone's own GPS system to automatically disable text messaging, phone calls, and other distracting activities from the driver whenever the phone is in a moving vehicle.

    You can simply install Detext onto a smartphone, and when the app senses that the phone has reached driving speeds, it automatically begins blocking text messages--sent & received.

    The Detext app can also be set up to send out real-time alerts, via SMS or email, when the driver exceeds specific speeds, enables passenger access, or disables the Detext app’s settings. Customize the phone's restriction levels and keep track of someone's safe driving habits—from anywhere!—using Detext’s convenient web dashboard.

    Thanks to the Detext safe driving app, your mobile phone can now actually help protect you and your family distractions while behind the wheel! Just go to http://www.detext.com to get your free download.
