Today, several driving apps are available and offer a range of features that aid drivers in recognizing areas that can be improved upon.



How Phone Apps are Fighting Distracted Driving


Distracted driving is becoming an increasingly prevalent problem, and insurers and app developers are striving to develop creative ways to combat this issue. Thanks to advances in technology, smartphones are becoming a tool for fighting – rather than causing – distracted driving. Farmers Insurance has recently launched an app called Signal, which provides drivers with feedback regarding their driving habits and gives helpful hints on how to stay safer behind the wheel.

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration spokesperson Eric Bolton, a majority of car collisions can be attributed to distracted driving. Every day, approximately nine people die as the result of distracted driving, and countless others are injured or have close calls due to multi-tasking behind the wheel. Common distractions include eating and drinking, driving with pets or children in the vehicle, tuning the radio, carrying on conversations with passengers in the vehicle, and road rage.

Among the most prevalent culprits of distracted driving is using a smartphone while operating a vehicle. Studies have demonstrated that 97.5 percent of people cannot safely drive while texting or taking a phone call. It takes an average of five seconds to read a text; whether a driver is traveling at high speeds on the interstate or they are driving through a residential neighborhood, a lot can happen in this small window of time.

In response to the overwhelming number of people who have suffered from the consequences of distracted driving, Nevada passed a law in 2011 that banned the use of handheld cellphones to make a call or send a text while driving. However, in spite of the hefty fines that may be imposed for breaking this law, distracted driving remains a leading cause of collisions. To combat this problem and help drivers develop better habits behind the wheel, insurers and app developers are creating apps that turn smartphones into tools that promote safe driving.

Today, several driving apps are available and offer a range of features that aid drivers in recognizing areas that can be improved upon. Some work by simply blocking incoming calls, texts, and app notifications while the vehicle is in motion. Others offer location sharing or send out a parent notification to let them know when their teen has arrived at a designated location.

Farmers Insurance has recently launched an app called Signal to help policyholders track their driving and identify potentially dangerous habits. The app analyzes several key areas and provides ongoing feedback regarding areas that contribute to accident risk, including phone use, heavy breaking, excessive speed, the number of miles driven, and time of day. App users can view a personalized map that outlines their route and tracks and logs their miles for business and tax purposes. As a bonus, app users that exhibit safe driving habits may be eligible for a discount on their auto insurance.

While drivers are facing more distractions than ever, driving apps can help them identify areas that need improvement while incentivizing safe and responsible habits.
