Distracted driving continues to make the headlines.
In response to the distracted driving epidemic, mobile phone makers and automobile manufacturers have proposed a range of technological solutions. Self-driving cars and “do not disturb” features on phones are just some of them.
But there continue to be concerns over how ready technologies like autonomous cars are to help stem the distracted driving epidemic.
If you operate a fleet of trucks, a transit system, field service employees or other drivers, how do you ensure you are reducing the risks of distracted driving today?
This month we introduced our Responsible Driver System, a unique, network-based approach to giving you direct control over driver usage of mobile phones.
Our system enables you to set and enforce policies over when and how your drivers can use mobile phone voice, text and data communications.
RDS uses our award-winning technology for enabling mobile workforces to enforce mobile usage policies in the wireless network itself. That means your drivers cannot bypass the restrictions except in emergencies or other circumstances that you choose.
Better yet, RDS works with any mobile phone including personal devices, meaning that you can enforce safe driving policies even when your employees’ use their own devices in a BYOD program.
