Texting and Driving in Kendall: Apps to Reduce Your Risk of a Car Crash

Distracted driving accidents in Kendall and the rest of Florida continue to be a growing problem. As more of us are connected all the time through our phones, our devices can still be a major distraction when we drive. Fortunately, there are apps which could help you avoid traffic accidents:


  • Apps that put your phone on pause: The best way to prevent your cell phone or mobile device from distracting you is to put it away in your glove compartment or somewhere where you can’t reach it, so you’re not tempted to take a peek at incoming notices. There are apps that help, by letting you shut off notifications, so your phone stays completely silent as you drive. When you safely park, you can access your missed messages.
  • Apps that automatically detect when you’re driving and shut down distractions: This can be a great solution for teens, since it prevents them from texting and driving. These apps are also handy because you don’t have to remember to shut off your phone or put it in airplane mode when you get in the car.
  • Emergency-only apps: Some apps allow you to designate a few emergency contacts—such as your child’s school—to come through and will send texts saying you’re unavailable to the rest of your contacts.
  • Teen driver alert apps: There are apps which let parents know if their teen is texting and driving. At the very least, the can start a conversation with your family about the dangers of using mobile devices when on the road.

There are apps which promise to read out texts and emails, allowing you to respond with voice messages. While they are better than taking your eyes off the road, experts recommend keeping your mind on driving as well.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
