With an increased awareness of the dangers of texting while driving, a new smartphone app may help promote safer driving. If you were seriously injured by a distracted driver or any other type of negligence, contact a Louisville personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
For some drivers the urge to respond to a text message is too great to resist. But for just 99 cents, AutoText, can send an automated response to an incoming text message. This works on Blackberry smartphones and Android phones.
You can choose ahead of time the response it will provide such as “Driving.” In addition, users can customize it for certain contacts on their phone or for all text messages that come through.
Reducing accidents from distracted driving can also be done through the following ways:
- · shutting off the phone before you drive;
- · turning the volume down so you don’t hear the phone alerts;
- · using a hands-free device; and
- · utilizing other devices that can block or disable the phone while driving.
All it takes is just a few seconds with your eyes off the road to create devastating consequences.
If you were the victim of someone else’s negligence in an accident and you suffered serious injuries, you should consult with a Louisville personal injury lawyer to learn if you have the right to pursue a claim.
