Aug. 19, 2010 - PRLog -- California Casualty Insurance of California(1) and Alan Insurance Company of Texas(2) have endorsed a simple, low cost solution to texting while driving called OTTER.  George Bowen, Senior Vice President of California Casualty, one of the founding sponsors of Impact Teen Drivers, said "California Casualty joins Impact in supporting the use of OTTER by teens.”  Their website states, “California Casualty is committed to finding ways to fighting the texting while driving temptation.  Here is the link to a low cost solution that saves lives.”

Ken Jordan, Vice President of Commercial Lines with Alan Insurance said, “Alan Insurance is excited to support the OTTER app.   It seems that we are constantly trying to avoid someone else on the road due to their lack of judgment regarding texting and driving.  The OTTER app should be a standard on all phones. It allows you to keep your eyes on the road your hands on the wheel and your phone where it belongs: in your pocket.”

“We are proud to have the support of these companies that are trailblazers in their industry.  They recognize that the text and drive issue has not even reached a tipping point and we need to think outside the box to offer solutions to drivers that are affordable and not invasive,” said OTTER LLC Owner and CEO, Erik Wood.

OTTER is the first app of its kind that integrates Auto Reply and GPS functionality to produce a tool that allows users to manage their texts while they are at home, in the office or, most importantly, on the highway. OTTER includes a GPS Parental Control feature for the highest risk drivers - teens.  Parents can enter a session specific pass code on teen’s phones to make sure that GPS Mode is on when the user is driving.  OTTER offers a tool to the texting culture instead of an invasive texting "lock down" system.    

OTTER LLC is a Seattle-based software company dedicated to making cell phone usage safer and more efficient.   This company revolves around personal responsibility and the belief that if you empower an individual with a simple but sophisticated tool like OTTER, this individual can manage their texts on their terms whether that is at home, in the office or on our highways.  For more information, visit
