Cell phones are generally seen as “can’t-live-without” items these days, and the urge to answer an incoming text or phone call, even when you’re driving, can be hard to ignore. That being said, it’s no secret that using your phone while behind the wheel is incredibly dangerous, and doing so can cause an accident.

In an effort to promote safe driving, Sprint has unveiled the new “Drive First” App, which has multiple features designed to help drivers keep their eyes on the road, not on there phones.

The app uses motion sensor technology to detect when the car is in drive and automatically responds to incoming texts with away messages (which you’re familiar with from your instant messenger days, right, CuPidXoXo99?). It also sends calls directly to voicemail.

And for all you concerned parents out there, if your son and/or daughter tries to disable the app, Sprint will send an instant notification to your phone (just don’t check it while you’re driving), and you’ll have every right to take back those car keys.

I don’t know about you, but I feel safer already.
