“Don’t Text and Drive.”  The slogan, the videos, and the deadly headlines still can't stop this compulsive epidemic.  So, technology companies have decided: If you can’t beat them, join them.

If you have an Android smartphone, a new app called iOnRoad just may prevent you from smashing your car.  The app uses the phone’s “native camera and sensors to detect the vehicles in front of the driver, and will alert users when they are in danger”.  iOnRoad can be compared to a passenger telling you to “Look out!” 

The best part (besides saving your life)—it’s free!
