PhonEnforcer Goes The Extra Mile By Turning Off Your Phone While Driving

PhonEnforcerHeadline I am not sure how I feel about PhonEnforcer. It is one of those apps that the people who really need it would never install it. PhonEnforcer takes things one step further than the traditional driving app (like DriveSafe.ly) by TURNING OFF your BlackBerry when you are driving.

They actually have five different offerings for their app ranging from free to $25.99 which you can see below. Todd actually brought up the point that a spouse or significant other could use to to ensure the person is not distracted by driving but that just feels kind of evil… What do you think? Would you consider installing PhonEnforcer?

PhonEnforcer Basic/Trial package – Free
The package will turn off the cell phone when the cell phone is traveling at more than 9 mph. User enters email or text addresses at installation. PhonEnforcer sends messages to these addresses when PhonEnforcer is automatically turned on.

PhonEnforcer Standard package – $14.99
The package will turn off the cell phone using customized settings. User enters (and can change) email or text addresses. PhonEnforcer sends messages of activity to these addresses.  User enters the speed at which the phone will be turned off. User can manually turn off PhonEnforcer when the user is not driving (for example, when the user is a passenger). User can manually turn on PhonEnforcer.

PhonEnforcer Standard package with Automatic Restart – $19.99
Includes all the features in the Standard package PLUS the cell phone is automatically turned on after PhonEnforcer has turned off the phone. The user sets the elapsed time after which the phone is turned on. PhonEnforcer will continue to turn off the phone if the phone is traveling faster than the turn off speed.

PhonEnforcer Hands Free/Text Detector package – $24.99
Includes all the features in the Standard package with Automatic Restart PLUS the user is allowed to operate the phone normally in hands free mode. PhonEnforcer will turn off the phone if Bluetooth is not active or if a headset is not plugged in. PhonEnforcer will also turn off the phone if a text or email is sent.

PhonEnforcer Special Notification package – $25.99
Includes all the features in the Standard package EXCEPT the phone is not turned off. Instead of turning off the phone, PhonEnforcer sends messages every 20 seconds when the user is on a call and the user is traveling faster than the turn off speed. PhonEnforcer also sends messages when a text or email is sent and the user is traveling faster than the turn off speed.

  1. Considering it takes my Tour a full 10 minutes to reboot – I don’t think this is the safest app in case of an emergency.

  2. all of these fail for two simple reasons… it doesnt discriminate whether you’re a driver or passenger, nor would people who truly need it use it (as stated in the post).

    i just wish people were considerate enough to do the responsible thing rather than selfishly and foolishly believing they’re a better driver than they are. driving is simply one of those things you dont “multitask”. why? because automobile accidents are the sixth highest cause of preventable deaths in the US. (i looked it up.) obviously, doing something that potentially dangerous should command your undivided attention.

    if i witness someone talking on the phone while driving, it doesnt irk me at all. but if i witness erratic driving due to inattentiveness that could result in harm to others, THAT bugs me a lot, as it demonstrates their total lack of consideration for the safety of others on the road.

    your rights end where another’s begin.

  3. btw, so many people in the US, around half to ballpark it, think the average citizen shouldnt be allowed to carry a firearm due to safety issues.

    at the very least, they believe anyone who desires to carry one legally should be highly trained in proper gun handling to ensure the safety of others around them. i unequivocally agree that anyone with a concealed weapons permit should have to take a pistol safety course.

    yet per annum, approximately 40% more people die in auto accidents than by a firearm (homicides, suicides, and accidents combined). despite this, people will march on the steps of their governments in a vain attempt to ban firearms to “save lives” yet none of them will give their drive home their full attention while the vehicle is in motion.

    i’m in a ridiculously inquisitive mood this morning.

  4. I honestly wish MORE COPS could be on the streets and just ticket anyone they see with a phone in their hand for “failure to pay full time and attention”. No need for new laws, it is already illegal and has been practi

    Just put the damn thing down and DRIVE!

  6. Reminds me of this SUV I passed the other day…
    It had a bumper sticker that said “HANG UP AND DRIVE”.
    This SUV was driving about 60 (in a 70 zone) and kept drifting to the side.
    When I went to pass, it was a soccer mom who was talking on her phone with one hand and doing something with the other (couldn’t see what she was doing).
    I woulda snapped a picture but I was too busy updating my SocialScope announcing what I just saw.
