A small distraction when driving can cause an accident. Even if we really don't want to answer a phone call or have a glimpse about who messaged us or what the notification is for, but the urge to check it is so strong and our focus on the road is diverted. It has been said that checking the phone is one of the biggest reasons for senseless accidents on the road and we wanted to avoid that and save lives instead.
