Microsoft is updating its Windows Phone 8 software to include a new “Driving Mode,” which will automatically silence incoming calls and text messages. The technology will activate automatically when the phone is wirelessly connected to a Bluetooth device in the vehicle. Drivers can also set the phone to automatically send a reply to an incoming call or text to let the sender know that the receiver is driving.
The Wisconsin personal injury attorneys of Samster, Konkel & Safran, S.C. congratulate Microsoft for developing this technology to prevent distracted driving. We are also committed to end distracted driving, such as texting while driving. Join us in our campaign to end texting while driving and distracted driving. Blue thumb bands are available for drivers to show their pledge to not text and drive. Visit our office at 1110 North Old World Third Street, Suite 405, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 53203, e-mail our office at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call our office to get the thumb bands. Please be on the lookout for our public service announcements on television, radio and the internet. Also, if you know of a school or group looking to have a distracted driving presentation provided, please contact us and one of our attorneys would be happy to provide a free presentation and thumb bands.
