A smartphone app has been designed to convince Japanese drivers to avoid checking their handsets while driving by offering them free coffee. If motorists ignore their phones for the next 60 miles, they will receive a free cup of coffee. The initiative is in the Aichi Prefecture, which is about 150 miles from Tokyo. The area has the worst figures for accidents causing injuries and deaths in Japan and road safety campaigners believe this is down to the growing use of handheld devices. Some 50,000 people in the region were arrested last year for using their phones while driving.
