We live in exciting times. We live in a time where you can have almost any convenience imaginable. It wasn’t that long ago when we were awed by the marvels of microwaves, or satellite TV, or the internet. Now we have tiny computers in our pockets that can be used in all sorts of amazing ways. Ordering groceries, maintaining health, keeping in touch with friends and loved ones. And, unfortunately, texting while driving.
Texting and driving is now the number one cause of teen fatalities, and the numbers are getting worse instead of better. This is why we started Keeping Roads Safe in the first place. To highlight some of the solutions we’ve come up with to help turn these numbers around we’re introducing a new blog series here on the KRS website called Introducing…. Each post will focus on a different aspect of our DriveCare platform and how it is designed to keep your drivers safe, whether they’re employees or family members.
Although the statistics like to focus on teen drivers, the truth is it’s not just teens or young people at all. In fact, some studies illustrate that the problem is much worse than that, with roughly 70 – 80% of drivers across all age groups admitting to using their phones while driving. This is why we built DriveCare, and this is why we will start highlighting each of our safety features in this new series.
In 2016, road safety is a big topic of discussion at companies large and small. And most of these conversations focus on distracted driving and reducing distracted driving in your company’s fleet. DriveCare was designed with this need in mind and we have built the product to help small and medium sized fleets put some weight behind their distracted driving policies to get your employees off their phones while driving. An easy installation and simplicity from start to finish make DriveCare a great choice for any company that wants to manage their vehicles’ GPS locations, fuel efficiency, speeding and (of course) distracted driving.
