Modern technology is raising the bar for vehicle safety. GPS, crash avoidance systems and innovative apps are preventing accidents and saving lives.
If you are planning a road trip, there are several apps that can make your journey safer. Examples include:
- ly: An app that reads texts to you;
- Waze: A comprehensive navigation app;
- And Fuel Finder: An app that helps you locate nearby gas stations.

Here are three apps to download before your next road trip:
This app reads your texts and emails aloud so you can keep your eyes on the road. It is perfect for long road trips or even businesses that employ several drivers. It is radio transmitter and Bluetooth enabled, making the app entirely hands-free.
Apple’s Siri function offers similar benefits. If you want to block incoming calls and messages altogether, try an app such as Safecell or Textecution.
Waze is a free app that provides traffic updates and navigation functions. With its community-edited maps, you are less likely to run into a guidance error.
- Fuel Finder
Fuel Finder can help your gas meter stay above “E” by helping you find nearby and budget-friendly gas stations. This is a must-download app for long road trips.
