"A little birdy told me..."
Since the U.S. is ranked #1 at texting and driving (which is nothing to be proud of, folks), there's now a mobile app aiming to put an end to it. The Canary Project, which kicks in whenever a car goes over 12 miles an hour, sends alerts or even an email summary to parents (or whoever's responsible for the culprit) that tattles on their behavior. "[It] says ‘John is texting and driving,’ ‘John is talking and driving,'" explained Jani Spede, CEO of The Canary Project. The app, which detects when your child unlocks their phone in order to answer a text or use an app, allow parents to set speeding limits for teen drivers, and even senses if your teen is in someone else’s car and that car is speeding.
