Stop calls while driving

A phone app helps motorists to ignore calls or texts that may disturb them – and possibly cost them a €135 fine – by blocking them and automatically sending back a message saying the person is driving.

Called Mode conduite, it uses motion sensors on Android phones to block calls and texts while the car or motorbike is moving then lets the driver know once stopped. Users can also give a personalised reply.

The app was developed with the Sécurité Routière road safety agency and can be switched off if using a train or bus.

Apple’s iPhones has a built-in feature ‘Do Not Disturb While Driving’. Go to Settings> Control Centre>Customise to set it. Windows phone users go to Settings>Driving mode.
