PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Accidents can happen at any time; but texting while driving can dramatically increase those odds.

Barry Baker uses the new app and he says he thinks there’s a definite benefit to it. “You can quickly make a decision what’s garbage and what’s not while focusing on driving safely,” Baker added.

Some say the application helps keeps drivers focused on the road; but not everyone is convinced that it’s the right solution.

“It still would be a distraction — listening to the email or text message,” Jim Tozza added, “and you want to reply.”
