These days, it seems as though there is an app for just about everything. So, it is not surprising that there are apps available for disabling the text and email features on cell phones while driving.

Although I am sure there are many such apps available, I have listed below only a couple that I recently came across.
- Cellcontrol (www.cellcontrol.com)
- Textecution (www.textecution.com)
If you need any further motivation, you can check out the many youtube videos of people sharing their stories of tragedy as a result of an accident caused by texting while driving. The video below was prepared by AT&T, and it provides a compelling reminder of the dangers of texting while driving.
