Nothing like putting your money where your mouth is. Kudos to Troy Orner for creating the "Life Before Text" App. The father of 8 year old triplets spent $20,000 of his own money and two years creating the app so his children will not be able to text or use a cell phone and drive. Here's a great news story on Mr. Orner.

The app can be set to begin shutting down cell signals once the vehicle reaches a certain speed. Changing the settings sends an email to parents that the device settings have been changed. Great job Mr. Orner. It's comforting to know that apps are available today that will help protect current young drivers as well as my three girls who will start driving in the next few years.

    Kevin, Thanks for the note. Problem with getting older is that your can't hear and you can't see. If you know Mr. Orner, please let him know that we congratulate him on his app for a job well done. Jeff
