Distracted driving technology control company Cellcontrol announced three key milestones in the company’s efforts to make commercial vehicles safer:
- More than 140 million blocked apps
- More than 49 million blocked text messages
- Nearly 12 million blocked calls
With more than 100,000 subscribers, the company also passed the 2 billion driver miles traveled and blocked more than 200 million unique distractions.
“Each of those 200 million distractions is a potential accident that’s been avoided and, for our customers, that’s a tremendous savings,” explains Joe Boyle, chief executive officer at Cellcontrol. “When you consider that our customers have traveled more than 2 billion miles at speeds of up to 60 MPH or more, it’s easy to understand how significant the impact is.”
Cellcontrol’s solution includes a mobile application along with a management console for operational control in the office and an in-vehicle IoT device, giving fleet owners the ability to block distractions and keep their drivers safe.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA), distracted driving is the culprit for 40% of commercial crashes.
