Digital detox is probably most important when driving. But how do you get people to avoid the dangerous tendency to reach out to their phones for a random text message or a seriously urgent (but not really) Instagram like while on the road?
One man has come up with a solution to combat distracted driving and it’s super simple. He paints his thumbnail red so every time he reaches for the phone while driving, the bright red thumb is his reminder to focus on the road. The simple yet innovative approach is catching on with more bright red thumbnails joining the effort, leading to safer traveling for all.
