Authors(2) :-J. R. Beny, C. Aishwarya

Mobile phone usage is increasing worldwide in recent years, with more than 700 million subscribers in India one step behind China as of July 2012.Considering the risk associated with usage of mobile phones while driving, India is way ahead of China. According to World Health Organization (WHO) in its first ever Global Status Report on road safety says, India has recorded maximum number of road accidents in the planet which also accounts on population growth. According to Indian National Crime Records Bureau at least 15 people dies every hour in road accidents. Various statistics also reveal that a large portion of road accidents in India is caused due to mobile phone usage while driving. Although various measures and rules imposed on mobile phone usage, still it's highly impractical to prevent this type of events. In order to overcome this serious issue, we developed an application which helps in reducing the number of mobile accidents considerably and we further extend our research by comparing the obtained results after installing this application, we have also shown how far this application helps in reducing economic losses in India.
