Ever sent a text while driving? Thought it would be alright to just pick up the phone and have a quick conversation while trying to pay attention to the road? Chances are we’ve all done it.
Now that Ontario has passed the ‘Countering Distracted Driving and Promoting Green Transportation Act,’ motorists have to wait until they’re off the road or use a Bluetooth device if planning to chat while driving.
Voice on the Go unveiled their new hands-free idea today. DriveCarefully is a unique app that allows BlackBerry Smartphone users to keep their eyes on the road instead of on their phone. Completely hands-free, you don’t even have to touch your phone!
As messages are sent, DriveCarefully automatically reads your Email, text and pin messages out to you. Messages are played directly through the BlackBerry speakerphone orĀ any BlueTooth headset and is available in English, French and Spanish languages. The app will soon be available on the iPhone, Nokia, Windows Mobile and Andriod.
Drivers can also use the app to call contact by name or number and update Twitter or Facebook statuses, by voice.
I personally don’t own a BlackBerry but if I did, I’d definitely try out this new App. DriveCarefully seems simple to use and if used, I might avoid ending up like this poor dude..
