New App Designed to Help Save Lives of Young Drivers

RUNAWAY BAY, QUEENSLAND -- Australian inventor Ian Dutka has invented a simple device and accompanying mobile app that will help save the lives of teen drivers across the country. CBS New York reported in 2013, more than 3,100 people were killed nationally in crashes that involved a distracted driver. The device, aptly named Distractless, aims to prevent phone-addicted teens from being able to use their phones while driving. Distractless is made up of two parts, a small immobiliser to be fitted under the dash near the ignition, as well as a mobile phone app. The car will not start until the app is switched on. The car then starts as normal but the phone will not be able to send or receive text messages, phone calls or emails and disables social media and maps (the app still allows the ability to listen to music and voice-activated apps).
