“I was already frustrated at how addicted to texting my daughter was,” said the San Clemente, Calif., father of four. At the time, he had just learned a grim fact: More than 7,000 Americans had died from texting and driving during the previous year.
Instead of just signing the required slip of paper, Irving decided to try to change things. In 2009 he began work on a smartphone app to help solve the problem of texting while driving. That app, which he called Text Kills, has then grown into a nonprofit company.
