Do You Text While Driving?

This Subscriber needs an upgrade

This post is from the ARMLS Training Department.
Subscribers are expected to be reached most hours of the day, even while on the road. Texting while driving can be a way to catch up with clients but it comes at a risk. The number of accidents occurring from distracted driving is increasing. According to a recent U.S. Department of Transportation report, text messaging while driving creates a crash risk 23 times worse than driving while not distracted. Not only is texting while driving dangerous, but in Tucson and Phoenix it is now illegal. Fines start at $100.

There is a solution to this problem! There are voice recognition apps that can read your text-based messages in a human-like voice and let you reply by voice.  Apple devices with Siri (currently iPhone 4S) and Android smartphones both have built in text-by-voice functionally out of the box.
