We all know that texting while driving is a horrible idea, yet many of us do it anyway. We anticipate being stopped at traffic signals so we feel safe to pick up the phone and respond, or we throw caution to the wind and multi-task. Both are just a bad idea.
Car manufacturers are making communication easier with bluetooth connectivity and technology companies create better bluetooth headsets every day, but this isn't solving the problem of texting while driving. We're here to offer some facts and solutions you can implement to make sure you don't become a statistic and Thompson Enterprises isn't towing your crashed vehicle away from an accident scene.
Your iPhone or Android phone comes pre-programmed with extreme functionality, some of which we are only scratching the surface of discovering! For this instance, we have discovered you can turn on auto text responses for incoming texts! How cool is this? You can turn it on when you're getting behind the wheel and turn it off when you've arrived at your destination. You can automatically let people know you are driving and request they call instead, or you can just let them know you can't talk right now. The options are limitless!
Our friends over at Gizmodo have detailed instructions on setting up these features on either your Apple or Android device. Head over to their site and take action now! Whatever you decide to do, arrive alive!
