CAPE CORAL, Fla., April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Don't you wish there was a way to prevent people from having their eyes on their phone, rather than the road? The TravelHalo app, developed by David Grant, is the perfect tool for the concerned parent of a new driver, a fleet manager, or driver who understands the dangers of distracted driving. Get the app now for your Android phone on Google Play!
The app uses GPS to gauge speed, and when the administrator's set maximum speed is reached, the TravelHalo goes to work. When the determined speed is achieved, the app will shut off the phone's ability to receive incoming calls, browse the web, or accept incoming and send outgoing text messages. The driver will still be able to make outgoing calls, in case of emergency. Once slowed down below the set speed, the phone will return to normal usage.
A study done by the University of California found that when distracted driving is removed, traffic fatalities are reduced by 22%, and that the number of deaths caused by drivers using their cell phone was down 47%. These numbers mean that distracted driving is just as, if not more dangerous than drunk driving.
The TravelHalo app is a great way to completely remove the temptation to distract yourself from the road. At 35 mph, a car travels more than 50 feet per second. Imagine looking down at your phone for just 3 seconds. In that time, you would have already traveled half the distance of a football field, all without looking at the road.
Eliminate distracted driving habits from your life, and protect the ones you love. Use the TravelHalo app. It could save your life, or someone else's. Don't wait to save a life until it's too late. TravelHalo is available for download now on Googleplay, search TravelHalo, or directly at:
