Slow Down: An App That Will Make You Slow Down Your Car, With Music

This is an app I'm completely supporting, as it's been developed and promoted by the Belgian organization OVK, Parents of Children Killed in Road Accidents. Slow Down, available for free in the App Store, will make you slow down your car by slowing down the music you're listening to while driving.

Thanks to a combination of GPS to retrieve a road's driving speed limit and access to the iPod library on your iPhone, Slow Down will remind you when you need to slow by slowing down a song or completely stop its playback. Simple and genius at the same time, as as I said -- a concept I'm seriously rooting for.

Go download the app here. Then use it.[Engadget via OVK]
