There are more and more apps coming to the market to help prevent texting and driving, monitor teen texting and driving or make texting and driving safer (although everyone knows that is NOT really possible). With all of the options out there, how do you know which one to use, and which one to encourage your teen driver to use?
Ideally, you want an app that is free, will prevent text messages from being received or sent while driving AND an app that will actually be used (happily) by a teen driver on a regular basis. We've found an app that fits perfectly and are very happy to be teaming up with Text No More (www.textnomore.com) and their amazing text no more app.
Text No More is completely free, prevents texts from being sent or received while driving AND keeps teens (and all drivers) using it by offering a great reward every time you drive text free!
Everyone loves a reward, and Text No More is making it very rewarding to do the right thing and be text free every time you get behind the wheel. The rewards are specific to each driver's location and includes great deals and offers from restaurants, coffee shops, local retailers and much more. Plus, every time a driver is using the Text No More app and they receive a text, the sender receives an automated message to let them know their text will be received as soon as the driver reaches their destination.
At texting thumb bands, we do a lot to get the conversation started about texting and driving. We do a lot to promote text free driving and help schools, sheriff's departments, companies and communities reward people for deciding to be a text free driver. Unfortunately, we have not had a good way to make sure that drivers follow through and stay text free - until now.
Our new partnership with Text No More allows us to help start the conversation about texting and driving and reward people for making the decision to be a text free driver (with a texting thumb band) AND provide a way for drivers to follow through and be rewarded every time they choose to be text free while behind the wheel. It's a great partnership and together we're going to make a real difference in 2012.
