Sprint launches Drive First app that keeps your eyes on the road, not on your smartphone

good idea for teenagers, but kids should be able to talk/text as a passenger...
...or on a bus, train, plane, boat, any other moving vehicle that goes over 10mph

But wait.... isn't this idea constantly giving information to Sprint which can track your location, sell it to the highest bidder to create the stalker of Sprint's choice, and send your privacy into the great abyss? Call CONGRESS!!
Actually, I love this idea. I try to remember to set my phone to vibrate when I am driving, and even then I find myself reaching for it just out of habit. I have loaned my truck to my 19-year old Daughter a couple times, and SEEN her reading a text as she drove away. My Wife is almost as bad. I would put this on the list of apps I would pay for.

Well, i don't like this idea. Next in the US, they might want to get a law saying that all phones have to have similar restrictions while driving...(that won't never happen in sweden, here you are even allowed to hold you phone while talking and driving).

Thank the Good Lord, you all must have WAY better drivers than what we have here, Peter!! The times I visit Chicago- Illinois, St. Louis Missouri, or Indianapolis Indiana, I cheer for laws to keep cell phones out of drivers hands. They get on the phone, it is like they are AIMING for us!! :-)

wasn't it a guy from Europe that lost his license because he was using like 3 phones at the same time, drinking a coffee, smoking a cigarette, getting a BJ from a prostitute; all while driving :P

You sir are a moron. You don't like something that has the potential to save lives? How ignorant could you be! It is people like you that kill people on the road while reading a text that consists of "k".

Yea great idea except i think our partners @ T-mobile have it for free and have had it for 3 months now and running. its called Drivesmart: calls get forwarded to voicemail unless you have a bluetooth then they go straight to your bluetooth and textmessages are replied with a message automatically. =(
