Baton Rouge, LA (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
In order to address the inherent safety concerns around distracted driving, Autobahn, Chile’s leader in automotive equipment for 27 years, partners with Cellcontrol to bring the world’s leading distracted driving technology to South America.
During the 1st quarter of 2013 alone, Chilean police reported 16,469 accidents caused by distracted driving. According to the reports, 3,602 of the people involved in the accidents were injured and 65 died. Furthermore, the National Traffic Safety Committee reported in 2012, 29,044 crashes were due to distracted driving.
“Education and awareness on the dangers distracted driving and its preventative technology needs to be a priority among both businesses and consumers in Chile,” said Rob Sanza, marketing manager for Autobahn. “If more high-tech vendors and insurance providers come together to creatively find solutions to reward drivers for safe driving practices, we could see significant results in our roads.”
Powered by its patented non-pairing Bluetooth technology, Cellcontrol prevents drivers from inappropriately using their phones to text, email, browse the web, etc. while they are actually driving.
“Distracted driving is a growing global concern and our priority is to help protect employees and families behind the wheel. We want to make sure everyone in the world returns home safely,” said Rob Guba, CEO of Cellcontrol.
Autobhan will offer both Consumer Cellcontrol™, a hardware that connects to the OBD port of the vehicle, as well as Cellcontrol Autobhan™ Enterprise for fleets. The latter will also provide real-time monitoring of fleet employee driving behaviors to help enforce corporate distracted driving policies.
