5 Apps To Avoid Car Accidents And All The Trouble That Comes With Them

When people drive at the same time as using gadgets it's a huge deal because lives are at stake. It's easy just to laugh it off because you do it all the time, but if you speak on your mobile or fiddle around on your iPad it's not just your life you're putting on the line. For all the unsafe people out there I've threw together a bunch of great apps that will help you stay out of trouble when you're on the road, because even if you don't hurt anyone you want to avoid getting in trouble with the law.


Once you leave home in the morning you want to get to work without any hassle. You want to stay away from any areas where there has been an accident because they can be dangerous with some cars forgetting to slow down. Trapster will tell you which route to follow based on any accidents that are still getting cleared up. It's also got a few more features including the ability to let you know where speed cameras are positioned and where police cameras are sneaking around.

How many drivers do you see with their phone attached to the side of their ear while they're driving? The number is far too many, but I bet you're guilty of it on occasion too. You might think Cellcontrol is too extreme, but it will essentially stop your electronic gadgets from working once you reach a certain speed. That means your iPad, mobile, and laptop will be out of commission. It can also tell when you're a passenger in a car because I'm sure you'd get annoyed if you got cut off for no reason.


This app is similar to the last one we talked about, but the reason I included it is because it's a powerful tool for people running their own company. If you give drivers their own vehicles and mobile phones it will allow you to choose what they do with their mobile phones while the vehicle is in motion. As a company you certainly don't want any of your drivers involved in an accident for a number of different reasons including legal ones, so this app would be perfect for damage limitation.
Drive Safe

Drive Safe will simply help you with the DMV knowledge exam, but if you haven't even passed your test yet you should definitely take a look at it. If you know the answers to the questions contained inside the app it's going to make you a safer driver, plus it's going to stop you from failing your written exam. If you've already got your license you still might want to check it out, because if you're not able to pass the practice tests there is something fishy going on.


Even if you're driving along at high speed it's very tempting to read your text messages when you hear your phone beep. This is one of the most unsafe things in the world because you'll literally sitting in a piece of heavy metal hurtling along the road. DriveSafe.ly is the perfect tool you need because when you switch it on it will read your text messages aloud for you. There is much less chance of you getting into any car accidents and you won't need to call in the lawyers to defend you in court.

The right side of the law

If these apps have taught you anything it should be that both your hands should be on the steering wheel at all times. Hopefully you think a few of them will be useful and if so you should download them because they might just save your life.
