A new app for Sprint Android users is available for just $2 a month and is thought to save lives.
The app locks your phone when you are driving over 10mph and alerts parents or spouse when it has been locked. The app determines your speed by using GPS and cell tower triangulation, the phone then automatically locks. If you were using the phone for a call or text, this will be suspended immediately.
In America cell phones are thought to contribute to 25 percent of all car accidents and parents of younger drivers in particular are welcoming this app.
It is thought the app will become available for BlackBerry users amongst other operating systems in the coming months.
