Using a cell phone while driving significantly increases your risk of being involved in an accident and violating the Highway Safety Code. The Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec developed the Focus Mode mobile app to help drivers avoid being tempted to use their cell phone while driving.
Drivemode for Android simplifies how you use your phone while driving. With a streamlined interface to safely access your favourite applications, Drivemode’s voice-enabled commands and large buttons let you focus on driving and stop you from texting while driving.
Here are stories from a few people whose lives were changed because of one text.
« L’ex a sophie » Laura took her eyes off the road for 2 seconds to read this short text sent by her best friend. These 2 seconds ended up being fatal. Her mother and the friend who sent her this text tell her story.
«Je suis en route» That’s the text the driver was sending when he crashed into Danielle’s oncoming motorcycle during her honeymoon. Her left leg was amputated. She’s here to tell her story.
«Bonne journée». As she sent this simple text, Amélie rammed the truck ahead of her. She’s now in a wheelchair and her right arm is paralysed. Amélie tells her story.
The goal of the Impactful Reminder exhibit is to encourage as many people as possible to stop using their phones while driving. A special thank-you goes to the victims who were brave enough to share their stories in order to prevent this from happening again.
