TXTBlocker Lets Users Disable Texting & Other Features While Driving

AAA and the government are working on plans to ban texting while driving. Now, there's a new product for cell phones that lets you ban yourself, employees, or kids from texting while driving. Mobile technology developer TXTBlocker has created a product for cell phones that lets owners disable texting and other functions while the user is driving.

TXTBlocker makes it possible for parents and employers to customize cell phones to disable texting functions, block certain numbers, or only permit incoming and outgoing calls to predefined "safe lists" or emergency numbers. TXTBlocker uses proprietary velocity and geographic algorithms. In addition to preventing dangerous use while driving, users can also set up 'safe zones' that do not allow distractions around focused areas such as schools or worksites.

TXTBlocker's product will be available for customers this fall. To learn more about TXTBlocker, visit the company's website at www.txtblocker.com. Here's what TXTBlocker has to say about its product:
TXTBlocker allows parents, employers and others to safely end the dangerous habit of texting while driving. Cell phone owners simply log in to this site and customize settings to control when, where and how their cell phones can be used.

Use TXTBlocker's GPS technology to disable or limit cell phone functions in your own "safe zones" like schools or workplaces.

TXTBlocker works automatically, so you never have to remember to turn it on, and it allows for safety features so that phones can always make calls to 911 and send or receive calls with preset "safe list" numbers.
