Texting and Driving- Protect Your Company
If you are a business owner with employees who drive while representing your company, you need to protect yourself from liability and protect your employees from being injured or worse by distracted driving behaviors. RoadReady Family can help you.
Mobile phones are an integral part of all businesses, and employees may be tempted to use them while driving, despite company policies forbidding it. Using smartphones while a vehicle is moving removes the driver’s concentration from the road ahead and the traffic around them, and their risk for at-fault accidents can rise exponentially. Texting, in particular, is becoming a problem everywhere, and employees may feel they are good drivers who can text while operating a vehicle. Crash reports and substantial research shows this is not true, and a driver’s attention is removed for several seconds at a time while texting. It’s just a matter of time before an accident will occur.
RoadReady Family uses an innovative app that effectively locks out a phone when the vehicle is in motion. Employees can concentrate on safe driving because the temptation to use their phone is removed. If they need to make a call, they can pull off the road in a safe area and use the phone normally. RoadReady Family can be an integral part of your business’ safety program for drivers. RoadReady Family is one of the few products in the marketplace which can effectively eliminate phone usage in a moving vehicle.
Usable on iPhone and Android platforms, RoadReady Family can also provide vehicle tracking services, maintain phone usage histories for each phone, and tracks the phone’s location over time as well. Thus you, as a business owner, have a complete record of employees’ movements and phone usage.
