Consider these facts, all preventable by enabling Airplane | Drive Mode:

  • 1 out of every 4 car crashes in the United States is caused by cellphone use while driving.
  • The majority of car crashes involve drivers distracted while talking on handheld or hands-free cellphones.
  • Texting while driving is 6 times more likely to cause a car crash than driving drunk.
  • Answering a text takes away your attention for about five seconds. Traveling at 55 mph, that's enough time to travel the length of a football field.

Sign this petition. Help us keep drivers focused on driving.

In 2014, 3,179 people were killed, and 431,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers. What if there was a way to prevent it? What if you could simply enable "Airplane | Drive Mode" before you get in your car? We already do it when we get on a plane, let's make it easy to do before we start driving.

Let's prevent these tragedies from happening:

Margay was an extremely bright child. She died, lying on the bottom of the bus, unable to be rescued and all because someone chose to use their cell phone while driving.

Her parents were killed and Jacy was left with unbelievable physical and emotional pain for something that didn’t need to happen.

Heather and her fiancé Patrick were to meet her parents at Walt Disney World. Heather’s car and 8 other vehicles were struck from behind by a driver that was sending and receiving text messages.

Vinny was in ICU for five weeks. The next two years were filled with more surgeries and continuous painful rehabilitation, 32 procedures in 26 surgeries in a two year period.

While training with his high school cross country team, Conor was killed by a distracted, unlicensed, hit-and-run driver.

Douglas’s life was lost due to the injuries he sustained by a distracted driver, records indicated the driver had used his phone minutes before the crash took place.

Please sign this petition so that Mobile Device Manufacturers will change "Airplane Mode" to "Airplane | Drive Mode"
