Using the smartphone while driving (reading the screen, sending messages, using the phone) dramatically increases the risk of accidents. To sensitize drivers, the app measures the number of times the smartphone display has been unlocked and the total distance and time the phone screen has remained on.
Based on this information, the app returns a score out of 10 for each trip. The purpose of the distraction score is not to judge the driver but to make him/her aware of the risk.
Indeed, there is no miracle solution to reduce smartphone use while driving. However, recent studies indicate that driver awareness is key to changing behavior.
