Help combat the alarmingly high number of traffic injuries and fatalities that occur every day due to distracted driving. On average, over 5,000 people a year are killed and more than half a million injured as a result of distracted driving.
TravelHalo eliminates the temptation by eliminating the option. Once installed, TravelHalo allows an administrator (such as a parent or fleet manager) to set a speed at which the phone automatically disallows incoming and outgoing calls, incoming and outgoing text messaging, web and internet use. TravelHalo continues to allow outgoing calls for emergency use only.
Statistics show that teenagers are most likely to be guilty of distracted driving. An online survey of 1,999 teens ages 16-19 found that 86% have driven while distracted even though 84% know it is dangerous (2010, AAA and Seventeen Magazine). The problem is so widespread because of the “it won’t happen to me” mentality.
Even though most recognize the dangers of texting and driving, people are still doing it. 60% of all drivers use cell phones while driving (2001, Harris Poll). Texting and driving has now become more fatal than drinking and driving. In addition to the lives forever altered by such carelessness, $1,000,000s are lost every year in litigation against companies whose drivers are the cause of distracted driving accidents.
We’re all guilty of it: the phone rings, you answer; it beeps with a text message, you look to read it. It takes on average 4.3 seconds to send or read a text. At 55 mph, that’s equivalent to driving the length of a football field …blindfolded.
