In response to grow­ing aware­ness, and in some states bans, on tex­ting and dri­ving, cell phone com­pa­nies are com­ing out with new safe­ty apps designed to help dis­cour­age tex­ting and dri­ving. Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile are among the com­pa­nies launch­ing fea­tures that con­trol dri­vers’ access to tex­ting. A low month­ly fee will be charged for the tech­nol­o­gy.
