)-- Ready Wireless today announced new tools in the Ready Fleet platform including Safe Driver Compliance, Crash Detection, Route Management and Maintenance Alert Notifications. The company leverages GPS, telematics and wireless technologies to help owners and managers improve driver safety and reduce costs associated with fleet accidents and injuries.
According to the AAA Foundation’s recently released Traffic Safety Culture Index*:
Drivers view reading (95.9%) or typing (96.7%) a text/email on a hand-held cellphone while driving to be very or extremely dangerous, compared with talking on a hand-held cellphone (79.8%).
Nevertheless, more than half of drivers (52.1%) report having driven while talking on a hand-held cellphone at least once in the past 30 days. Fewer respondents report engaging in distracted driving by reading (41.3%) and typing a text/email (32.1%) on a hand-held cellphone while driving.
Dennis Henderson, CEO and Co-Founder of Ready Wireless shares, “When your name is on the side of the vehicle you certainly do not want distracted driving happening. Our customers deploy the processes incorporated into our Ready Fleet platform to make measurable and lasting change for better driving outcomes. Our team supports a seamless operational integration to deliver immediate benefits.”
Ready Wireless has partnered with Sarah Allender, Risk Solutions Advisor from TrueNorth®, an insurance and financial strategies service company, to increase market awareness of the risks associated with distracted driving. She notes, “This technology is a proven way to hold drivers accountable which can reduce insurance claims and resulting premiums. At the end of the day what is really important is that our employees go home safely to their loved ones, their hobbies, their lives. That is the ultimate measure of success.”
