‘Call Me Out’ App uses social pressure to stop distracted driving
An app developed by Chevy for Android called ‘Call Me Out’ is an interesting take on the fight against distracted driving. The app allows your loved ones to record voice memos with a reminder to stop driving distracted. The voice memos from your loved ones will play when your phone is picked up when you’re traveling faster than 5mph.
We’ve known for a long time that social pressure is a huge factor in distracted driving. If you’re in the car with your friends, and they ask you to put down your phone – would you? The answer is probably yes. This app fills an opportunity while a driver is alone.
Chevy has not announced the app to be release on iOS.
