Do Not Disturb While Driving

Each Android phone has different capabilities for reducing distraction while driving. Below, find out how to activate Do Not Disturb While Driving features on your phone.

What is a Do Not Disturb while Driving feature? 

By using a third-party app or activating a Do Not Disturb While Driving (DNDWD) feature on your phone, you won’t have to worry about annoying messages, push notifications, or distractions while you’re driving.

Why do it? 
  • Unwanted phone notifications are really annoying when driving

  • Turning on a setting that hides these until you stop driving helps maintain your focus on the road and decreases the risk of crashing

  • Every day in the U.S., an average of 9 people are killed, and over 1,000 people are injured by distracted driving.  Don’t let this be you or your loved ones.

  • The vast majority of U.S. drivers say it is very dangerous to check notifications and text while driving. They are willing to give this up but find it hard to resist the temptation.
