92% of drivers use their phone behind the wheel according to a recent study. 88 seconds of an average 21 minute journey is spent on a cell phone. In 2017 Apple introduced this new feature as part of IOS 11 which allowed your phone to be in Do Not Disturb mode while you are driving. When your phone is connected to your cars entertainment system via bluetooth or usb then the phone can detect when you are in the car and enable this mode.
