Encourage Safe Driving With These Safe Text Apps

Texting and driving is illegal in 46 states, and the District of Columbia, yet the use of cell phones while driving plays a significant role in 1.6 million car crashes each year throughout the United States. Texting while driving puts drivers at a 23% higher risk for accidents – a 4-6 second text is equivalent to driving a football field, blind.

Dont Text and Drive Safe Driving Apps

A notification chime can be tempting. To help keep you safe, several apps have been developed to block texts while driving and encourage you to make smarter and safer decisions while you are on the road. Those apps include:

(Designed with Parents in mind)

Cellcontrol is a subscription-based service designed with parents in mind, that features a device inserted under the dashboard and an accompanying app that blocks your teen from sending or receiving texts while driving, and disables other phone features such as email or the camera while the car is moving. You’ll get a text or e-mail alert if Cellcontrol is deactivated or removed. 

Drive Safe Mode
(Designed with Parents in mind)

Drive Safe Mode prevents texting and emailing while driving, and notifies a parent or guardian when the phone is in use and if the driver shuts off the app while on the road. 


Live2Txt lets you block incoming texts and calls while driving. Your smartphone will be silenced from incoming notifications, texts and calls when you turn on the app. When you receive a message, the app will alert the sender with a customized message that you’re unable to respond at the moment.® features one-touch operation and auto-on that lets users interact with their phone while driving. announces callers by name, reads text messages and emails aloud, and can be set to auto-respond without the driver needing to touch the device. 


Drivemode enables your phone to read incoming messages aloud with the touch of a button. It runs over the top of any app you’re using and breaks your phone down into various functions: Music, Calls, Apps, Destinations, and Messages. 

We understand that accidents do happen, sometimes by no fault of your own. Be prepared. Download HKQ’s Accident App.

As Hourigan, Kluger and Quinn addresses the concerns raised by COVID-19, the health and safety of our clients, employees and friends of the firm remain our top priority.

These are very difficult and scary times and we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and symptom free. We recognize that so many of you are understandably anxious about your health, the economic impact of this pandemic and all of the consequences of social isolation.

We also recognize that many of you are anxious about how the coronavirus is impacting the Court systems, our firm and your cases. Although all of our offices are closed, our firm has remained fully operational and we have initiated procedures that allow all of our attorneys and staff to work remotely from their homes. Each of us and our staff will respond to any emails and calls about your cases as quickly as possible.

Our Federal and State Courts have instituted significant changes in their calendars as a result of the coronavirus. Although most courthouses are closed to the public, and Hearings and Trials will be delayed for some time, there are matters that can proceed telephonically and by video. Despite these changes in the Court calendars, we are working diligently on your cases and are determined to do whatever we possibly can to assure an early and just recovery for you and your loved ones. Even under these difficult circumstances, we believe that "Nobody will work harder for you than we will."

With regard to new potential clients, we are not in a position to have an in-person new client meeting, but we will be conducting these initial meetings via phone. New potential clients should call us for a free telephone consultation at (570) 287-3000.
