Every day – every month, at least nine Americans die and 100 are injured in distracted driving crashes. April, Distracted Driving Awareness Month, is the best time to focus your efforts on reducing distractions in your fleet. Cell phones, dashboard touchscreens, voice commands and other in-vehicle technologies pose a threat to our safety. Are the consequences of these distractions worth the convenience they offer?
Many times it’s not a matter of if a collision from distracted driving will occur, but when. Time and money are spent looking at collisions after they occur. But, what if you could look at what causes collisions before they happen, so you can lessen the chance of one occurring in your fleet?
