22 Mar Sentinel Joins Petition for “Airplane/Safe Drive” Mode
Most smartphone users know about the “Airplane mode” setting on their phone which disables functions. The name of the setting likely stems from airline policies of asking passengers to switch their phones off during flights. A growing concern, however, is that this mode should be used not just for airline flights, but driving as well.
Sentinel has joined an effort to ask mobile phone manufacturers to change the name of Airplane Mode to “Airplane/Drive Mode” to remind drivers that it’s never safe to drive with the distractions of a smartphone. Sentinel is asking everyone to help make our roads safer by joining in this effort.
