9 people in the U.S. are killed each day as a result of road traffic accidents involving a distracted driver, according to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Driving is a daily activity for many and before the arrival of mobile phones, people would concentrate solely on the job at hand – driving. Now, there are 3,287 deaths each day due to fatal car crashes and on average, 9 of these daily fatalities are related to distracted driving. The sad thing is that these deaths are all preventable.
Safeguard Your Fleet
Distracted driving is a complex issue within today’s society, affecting drivers across all age groups and all vehicle types. Approximately 660,000 drivers use their cell phones while driving during daylight hours, creating a large potential for crashes and fatalities. For companies who run fleets of vehicles this is a major concern.
FleetGuardian® prevents manual and visual mobile phone distractions while driving with its secure safety box, where drivers place their cell phone out of sight and reach resulting in, no texting, no holding, no reaching, no dialling – actions which all create avoidable risk. All are banned for commercial motor vehicle drivers under Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations.
