We need to make sure that distracted driving, as an issue, is still important throughout the year. It’s not just an April problem.

Ciaran Hynes, CEO of safe driving technology developer 10n2 Technologies, has called for continued focus on the dangers of distracted driving as Distracted Driving Awareness month draws to a close. Throughout this past month, 10n2 Technologies, along with numerous news outlets, government departments and road safety lobby groups, sought to raise awareness about the dangers of cell phone usage while driving.
Speaking about the success of the campaign, Mr. Hynes pointed out that this is an ongoing problem, “It’s great to see so many big news organizations, and government departments taking notice this month. But it shouldn’t end here. People still use cell phones when they drive and it’s still dangerous. We need to make sure that distracted driving, as an issue, is still important throughout the year. It’s not just an April problem.”
As a provider of anti-distracted driving technology, 10n2 Technologies, continue to campaign against in-car cell phone use throughout the year. Mr. Hynes outlined the importance of the ongoing campaign, “This company was set up to prevent deaths and injuries on the road and to promote safer driving. Our target is to reduce the number of needless accidents that occur everyday, that process continues every single day.”
He went on to illustrate the success of April’s Distracted Driving Awareness month. “We have seen a lot of positives this month. Stories that might not have been big news have reached a wider audience through the campaign. Which is a positive step. There have also been a few important stories, like the research in relation to Siri and strong images, like that tragic text message in Denver.”
In summing up the campaign, Mr. Hynes said, “It’s been a very important month, but we can’t let it stop here. Distracted driving is a preventable problem. We are all responsible for making our roads safer. We have to remind people of that every single day.”
