Distracted Driving Solution
In the 21st century, texting and talking on the phone are huge causes for distracted driving. In 2017 alone, distracted driving caused 3,166 deaths and 34,247 injuries, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA).
Distracted driving hurts transportation businesses in many ways. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), the average cost/vehicle to businesses due to collisions is between $4000 and $8000. In addition, employers are being held liable up to $25 million for employee crashes, even when employees use hands-free devices.
