AT&T wants to know if the last text message you received is worth the chance of possibly getting into a vehicle collision and harming yourself or someone else. More likely than not, the answer would be "no". AT&T is striving to change the views of people about texting and driving. The risk factors of taking your eyes off the road for even just a few seconds to respond are not comparable to doing your best to ensure the safety of all the drivers on the road by not using your phone while driving. Now there's an app that can help take away the temptation to check your phone: AT&T's DriveMode App for BlackBerry.
- You have a customizable "Allow List" of up to five contacts of your choosing to keep the ability to make and receive calls while DriveMode is enabled.
- The app allows you to have one (1) music app and one (1) navigation app open when DriveMode is enabled.
- By downloading DriveMode, participants are automatically signing AT&T's It Can Wait pledge to not text and drive.
- Once DriveMode is disabled, you will be able to text, call, tweet, email, and play with your apps as usual.
So join the fight to stop texting and driving by downloading this app today. Use it, love it, pass it on and save a life. Help AT&T and all those who have signed the pledge by downloading the app to make the roads a safer place for everyone.
