Technology like Bluetooth and infotainment systems that read your text messages help, but Toyota may have figured out the best way yet to keep people off their phones while behind the wheel, particularly teenagers.According to Automotive News, Toyota has collaborated with London ad agency Saatchi & Saatchi to create the Safe and Sound mobile app. Safe and Sound covers the basics like blocking social media posts and incoming calls when traveling over 9 mph, but it goes a few steps further than that.When the app is activated, any time the driver (presumably a teen) tries using the phone while driving or if they go over the speed limit, it starts playing their parents’ Spotify playlist. The Spotify accounts for both the child and the parents are linked to Safe and Sound and it will play the child’s Spotify playlist when they’re behaving and switch to mom and dad’s music ..

Conte takes his reigning Premier League champions to face Spurs at Wembley on Sunday as Pochettino's side look to start their season away from White Hart Lane with a London derby victory.During pre-season Conte questioned the ambition of Tottenham, given they had not signed any new players at that stage, but Spurs' first arrival of the transfer window came on Friday in the shape of Ajax defender Davinson Sanchez.The Italian also said it is "not a tragedy" if Spurs do not win the title or qualify for the Champions League - whereas it is for the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City.

  • How can terrified parents of newly qualified teen drivers persuade them to drive safely? Toyota has come up with what could be an ingenious method -- embarrassing them. The brand's new Safe and Sound App, created by Saatchi & Saatchi London, not only blocks social media posts and incoming calls once they're traveling over 9 mph, it automatically switches to playing their parents' Spotify playlist once they break the speed limit or try to use their phone. And, naturally, parents are free to put as much embarrassing music on there as they choose. The parents activate the app when the teen wants to borrow their car, and it syncs both parent and child Spotify accounts. The app uses Google Maps API technology to detect if they're speeding, and when the young driver touches their phone or breaks the speed limit, the music they are playing through Spotify will suddenly cut out and their parents' playlist will kick in instead. Only once the driver stops interacting w..
