New Technologies and Distracted Driving

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in The Daily Drive

Distracted driving was named the word of the year in 2009 by Webster’s dictionary.   It is hard to believe the problem which has been with us for more than a decade, has been elevated so highly in the public consciousness as of late.

The new focus has also led to a virtual plethora of new companies, industries and applications all designed at making us safer drivers by either suppressing the ability to text or talk while driving, tracking the actual driver behavior in the vehicle via GPS or even allowing real time observation within the vehicle via camera to provide real time behavior modification.

The price on these tools to prevent distracted driving range anywhere from free to thousands of dollars.   They all avoid one simple solution, just drive.

A vehicle is not a toy, driving is not a right.   Your primary responsibility to yourself and everyone around you when behind the wheel is to be behind the wheel.

Just DRIVE.

DefensiveDriving.com offers a variety of courses which provide the fundamentals of driver safety via our online driver safety programs, approved defensive driving courses in the US and our traffic school for Florida.   We strongly encourage you to focus on driving when behind the wheel.
