Sprint Aims to Make Driving Safer with Phone App
Sprint has unveiled a new app for smart phone users that disables the phone while you drive.
The app is said to disable the phone after the car goes over 10 miles per hour. It monitors progress by tracking the phone from cell towers.
If you make a call and then drive, the app will disconnect the call.
You can turn off the app or bypass it to call 911 while you're driving.
But if the app is turned off after it's been activated, a message will be sent to the person who installed it.
Sprint charges $2.00 dollars a month for its 'Drive First' app.
Users can visit the Sprint app site, 'Drive First', to learn more about how it works.
