Stops Messages. Saves Lives.
Road Mode is an app from VicRoads that allows you to drive without distraction, silencing your incoming calls and text messages while you are on the road. Those calling or texting you will receive an automated text response to let them know you are driving and can’t answer. When you arrive at your destination, Road Mode will provide a summary of the calls and messages you received during your trip.

**If you are using Handcent SMS or GO SMS, you need to uncheck the "Disable other message notification" setting for the auto-reply feature to work.

**Road Mode does not silence Google’s Text-To-Speech (TTS) service and associated apps which use this service. This will include:

• If you are using Task Killer or App Killer, please exclude Road Mode to ensure it works properly.

• If enabled, Road Mode sends an SMS automatically to incoming SMS messages and phone calls from a mobile. Message and data rates may apply to each SMS message sent or received as provided in your wireless service rate plan.

Needs to be available for iPhone I think this app is great idea, but, my daughter just got her learners 3 days ago & this app would be fantastic for her to have on her phone, but as she has an iPhone it is not available to her. Is this app going to be available for iPhone users anytime soon? Also tried the app for the first time today. For receiving a text it worked fine, but when a phone call came through the phone still rang. Will try again on our next trip out & will update review & stars if these issues are resolved

Not quite there. This app needs the auto responce to be personalised. Other apps around do this. Its pointless have an app with a stand msg thought up by a public servant. Who hasnt worked a day as an owner/operator in their life.

Is it really needed l find putting phone on silent before getting in car achieves the same result. It's not difficult just press the relevant button before getting in vehicle. Or just not answering until you stop. Kenan Dudok is quite right. Education. Is all that is required. Teach driving at school make it part of curriculum. Or is it too costly. Not nearly as costly as rehab for injuries sustained by being stupid behind wheel. Oh yes l forgot l am entering old persons age for driving. But drive for a living.

Great app. Thanks for this app it is great. Shame on the people who degrade it. You just keep on texting while you drive you idiots.

Top app but needs 1x widget Needs 1x1 widget .currently only has 2x2 and 4x2 widget. The larger widgets make the page layout look wrong

Kosta Avyerinos

Brilliant This is an excellent idea. However it would be nice to have the option of answering calls as most cars these days are equipped with Bluetooth. Aslo I do agree that being able to personalize the auto response would be much better.

Kenan Dudok

Here's an idea I only downloaded this app to write a review saying what a stupid idea of an app. If you want better drivers then put getting a car licence into the education system and promote cheaper registration and car insurance for any driver that has done an advanced driving course. I've got a car, bike, boat and jet ski licence.

Brendon Looks Good But I Have Not Got The Hang Of It Yet

Installed it only moments ago so can't give in use feedback, but I like its simplicity. Would be handy to have a 1x1 On/Off widget as an option. Thank you for a much needed app.

Jess Tu

It works but... Can't see list of missed call. It only show number of missed call. Personalise auto response is a good idea. Why do you need to answer the phone when you're suppose to be DRIVING. Get off the phone.

Abigail Carr

Doesn't work Its crap. Doesn't even work. My phone still rings and still beeps when the ap is turned on. Uninstalling it coz what's the use of using up phone memory on something that doesn't work?


Fantastic I now use road mode before I get I to the car. It does not ring ad does not distract me. I turn it back on when I get out if car. Simple!

Pinky Tan

Great app! Perhaps it could include a setting to personalise your own auto reply?

Anthony Gommers

Useful Great idea, works well, keeps your eyes on the road

Daniel Montoya

Good but could be better The idea is really good but you should be able to customize the auto-message.

Caitlyn Smart

Great app! Great app to use for beginner drivers, like myself, and advanced drivers too

Roy A

Awesome It saved my life

Byron Paterson

Would love a widget Nice and simple app. I would love a widget as my phone sits in a holder and bluetooths music to my car

Paul Davidson

Awesome app and will save lives

Tim Lelek

Simple and easy to use. Simple no frills app. Very easy to use.


Good start, but.... Auto message needs to be configurable. App starts even if GPS is off, as in, one could enable the app but it wont work. Needs to flag GPS status if enabled with GPS off. Should also have option to divert to voice mail as an option as well.

Alan Mirv

Great but Install it and wsd excited till the app locked my phone onto messages. I reinstall and same again. Please let me know if there is a fix

Jo Kallina

Finally, safety. Great app, great idea. Thanks TAC and VicRoads.

witek lonski

great idea just heard about it on the radio lol very cool

Just Stupid app

Cus band

The common sense app??, yes but?. Texting and calling can now wait. But what software engineers don't realise is that when it deactivates to 20 Km/hr and have a over 1000 kg of metal you will just hit as hard against a solid object.

Laurence Rucker

Good idea BUT Need to be able to select disable both voice and text. OR just text. Most vehicles have hands free built in for a reason. The under 20 k's for 10 minutes does not work in peak traffic periods. If you have sound notification for text then why disable. Wait till safe to park and answer. If in hands free cradle text displayed on screen anyhow, so if not urgent can reply later. Until they change law to being illegal to use phone at all in car this is useless. Is this a pre-warning to such a legislation change?

Essential to traffic safety. And so simple to use. In a world where common sense isn't, and selfish lack of decency and concern for the safety of others prevails; using this simple helpful tool shines light on what is good and right social behaviour. Distraction = inattention = split second consequences that are irreversible. Our precious Phones WILL and HAVE killed many this way. Pls think and care.

Sam Harrison

Very good app Saw it at advertise at vicroads its very good so wat if the phone rings it will text the person back

Liz Campbell

Fantastic app Really great to have an app like this. It's not widely advertised and should be.

SimCity Miller

Great app but App is good.. Really does save life.. I'm always looking at my phone when I get a text tho I don't want to.. This app really has help me focus on the road.. The only problem with this app is that you still get calls coming when you are driving..

Aaron Barnes

Needs custom message for auto reply The auto reply option is great but the standard message is crap. Need to add custom messages, people have been asking for 3 years
