The Key2SafeDriving device, which we mentioned last year, has gone on sale in the USA. Well, it’s available for ‘preorder’, with delivery expected within the next 90 days. K2SD is a Bluetooth device that automatically switches a mobile phone into ‘safe driving mode’ when the key is used. Incoming calls are diverted to voicemail and incoming text messages receive an automated response advising that the user is driving. The company points out that 21% of fatal car crashes involving 16 to 19-year-olds are the result of mobile phone usage.
