Phone jammer can make you drive safely

WINNIPEG – Distracted driving is a trend that shows no signs of slowing down.

Even if Manitoba has some of the country’s harshest penalties, a $ 200 fine paired with five mistakes, it still doesn’t seem enough to stop drivers from answering a text or call. The police say they see someone every day who puts themselves or others at risk by simply picking up the phone.

Distracted Driving As of June 1, the minimum penalty for distracted driving in BC is $ 543

Hart Levine is a concerned father and advocate for stopping distracted driving. He said he had a solution to the problem of distracted driving. A cell phone jammer called Drive ID. You buy the device, download an app and connect the app to your phone.

“Every time the person gets into the car with this mobile phone with the drive ID, you cannot use any of the keyboard functions,” said Levine.

He said that depending on which apps you block, you can only answer your Facebook, text, or phone calls via Bluetooth. You can still make 911 calls.
