Have you ever had a bad habit that you’ve conditioned yourself out of doing?
I recently lost my headphones for a month among the chaos of my home, and I stopped running because of it. Running is monotonous for me, so listening to music is the only way I bear it. I could only imagine the toil of running without headphones. Every second feels like 10, and every step is under a microscopic lens in my head. The sound of my foot against the pavement somehow gets louder as I get farther, nagging me to just give up. I lose things often, so I couldn’t justify buying another set right away. However, without headphones, I was practically paralyzed.
TextNinja is the newest app to help fight distracted driving, but it is not the first to tackle this massive, social problem. The TextNinja solution seems to be doing at least a few things right, but how does it stack up next to some of the other apps for texting and driving?
There are several other solutions emerging on the market, and only some that are comparable to TextNinja. One leading solution, released all the way back in 2011, is AT&T’s DriveMode. It is definitely one of the more popular apps, but popularity does not always equate to effectiveness.
TextNinja is very happy to be part of the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, helping to raise distracted driving awareness! It is in honor to take part of something so historically large in size and importance in the automobile innovation scene.
As we race towards autonomous cars and ever-improving urban mobility through a connected car revolution, it is easy to get swept up in the latest and greatest automotive trends. Of course there has always been a place for safety at the Auto Show, and exhibitors give a lot of attention to how ‘safe’ their brands are in the eyes of the public. But until every car, old clunker or shiny new, is somehow a distraction-free environment for drivers, distracted driving is a safety topic worth discussing.
For starters, it needs to address the root cause. Find out what TextNinja founder Jim Ramirez thinks that is as he chats with Tom and Tony from Bootstrapping in America about preventing distracted driving. Does this solution to texting while driving have a chance?
TextNinja aims to give you the tools to stop texting and driving, and make the process easier and more accessible. But it’s hard to solve this problem without understanding the fundamental causes of texting and driving. Beneath the alarming fatality and collision statistics, before the need for legislative measures, and behind all of the national campaigns for awareness against texting while driving is a psychological human element that, for most, is unavoidable.
