Concerned about texting and driving? There's an app for that!

If you have been following our blog, you know that distracted driving is one of biggest concerns parents have when they think about teenage driving. You may have extracted promises from your teen to drive conservatively and may have shared statistics of distracting driving with your teen; however, there is only so much a parent can control when he hands off his car keys to his child. Casting promises aside, teenagers may engage in risky behavior while driving because their attention is drawn to a cell phone, passenger, radio or all three sources of stimuli.

We've all heard that texting and driving don't mix. It's one of the most common forms of distracted driving today, as well as one of the most dangerous. But even the most responsible drivers can become distracted -- without a phone, sandwich or noisy passenger in the car. If you've ever made a driving mistake because you were consumed by strong emotions or simply daydreaming, you may be able to relate.

New guidelines introduced to curb distracted driving

More than just talking on cell phones, distracted driving includes texting while driving, paying attention to turn-by-turn GPS modules and mobile DVD players.

Will Glass be banned behind the wheel?

Google is remarkably low-key when it comes to promoting new products compared to rivals Apple, Samsung and IBM. Indeed, much is said about its research into autonomous vehicles, but its upcoming Glass project may be the next big thing in the mobile computing industry. Essentially, through Google Glass (which is a pair of glasses that a person could use much like a cell phone) users could take pictures, create speech-driven text messages, and even have pop-up reminders that they will see without reaching to a cell phone.
