IRVING, Texas, Jan. 27, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WebSafety, Inc. (OTCBB:WBSI), the leading provider of mobile and Internet safety software technologies, today announced that due to a high level of membership acceptance and product interest, AAA Northwest Ohio and the company are extending its partnership to co-market the company's CellSafety mobile phone application software to AAA Northwest Ohio members.

AAA Northwest Ohio began a trial marketing program of the CellSafety mobile phone application to its members on October 19, 2010 and continued this effort through January 19, 2011. During this trial marketing period, AAA Northwest Ohio members were offered the CellSafety service at a discounted monthly rate of $3.99 for unlimited phones within the same household. The goal of this marketing effort was to measure the acceptance of the CellSafety application among Northwest Ohio AAA members with the intention of expanding the marketing of the CellSafety application to all AAA members nationwide.

"There is no doubt that the CellSafety mobile phone application has saved lives and reduced property damage by preventing drivers from texting-while-driving," said Travis Bond, Chief Operating Officer of WebSafety. "Our partnership with AAA Northwest Ohio has provided more than just cost-savings to their members; we have and will continue to provide a viable way to make the roads safer for all drivers. We are therefore pleased to announce the extension of our marketing partnership"

Using a phone's GPS system, WebSafety's patent pending technology detects when a vehicle is moving at speeds above 10 mph and blocks all texting, email and web browsing (including chat, IM and Skype).  

With compatibility on more than 75 models of smartphones powered by the Android, Blackberry and Symbian operating systems and on all of the major wireless carriers in the United States (AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon) as well as the three wireless networks in Canada (Bell Mobility, Rogers and Telus), the CellSafety mobile phone application is the most widely available solution to stop the dangerous and often deadly practice of texting-while-driving. CellSafety is also effective in reducing corporate liability for vehicular accidents caused by an employee's improper use of a company-issued mobile device while driving.

The CellSafety mobile phone application includes additional features which can be activated to inhibit texting in school via "No Texting Zones," which allows students to focus on scholastics and save the socializing for later, speed alerts and "Where R U" location services for parents, as well as email and text notifications in real-time if users are sending or receiving inappropriate messages. WebSafety has the world's largest, most comprehensive word recognition library of its kind with advanced database capability to search more than 11,000 words, terms and phrases that can help to detect and prevent explicit or degrading texting, cyber-bullying, sexting and unlawful Internet cyber-predator behavior.  

WebSafety's full suite of services are available starting at $9.99 month, with discounts for enterprise-level commercial and governmental accounts. For additional information or to download the CellSafety software application, please visit www.websafety.com and click on the red "BUY NOW" button.

Larry Lipman of Alliance Network, Inc., a preeminent provider of membership services for acquisition and retention programs, was responsible for connecting WebSafety, Inc. and AAA NW Ohio in order for the companies to secure this partnership.
