At Blank-it, we know that driver distraction should be a primary area of concern for all drivers and employers, one that has to be addressed through policy, education and the use of technology-based solutions.
While the Blank-it solution is aimed at managing the use of vehicle-mounted computers, we are also well aware of the distraction dangers posed by the use of mobile phones.
Research suggests that both the physical and cognitive distraction caused by using mobile phones while driving can significantly impair a driver’s visual search patterns, reaction times, decision-making processes and their ability to maintain speed, throttle control and lateral position on the road.*
Blank-it & Fleetsafer
Blank-it has teamed up with Aegis Mobility to provide your workers with the ultimate safety tool for preventing mobile phone driver distraction.
Introducing Fleetsafer® – software for smartphones and tablets that detects driving state and automatically puts the device in “safe mode” while driving. In safe mode a “curtain” blocks access to the keyboard and screen. All notifications and alerts are silenced – including incoming calls, texts and emails.
When the device detects that it is stationary full functionality is returned to the user.
