New York, NY (PRWEB) November 14, 2013
Driving simulation games have been a great source of entertainment for many. But as the percentage of people surfing while driving increases, as based on the news from usatoday,com, Stisim Drive said that they now have a new role of helping people become better drivers.
According to the news, which was posted on November 12, 2013, the percentage of people accessing the Internet while behind the wheel nearly doubled since 2009 from 13% to 24%, Stisim Drive related. In a ratio, it said that it had come to a point where nearly one out of four drivers surf the Internet while driving.
As the report cites, this increase was prompted largely by the growing number of smartphone users, Stisim Drive shared. And because of it, it relayed that Chris Mullen, State Farm's director of technology research, stated that the agency wanted to keep a tab on the smartphone use apart from texting and calling.
Here's an excerpt the report by USAToday.
"Americans are still surfing while driving."
"The number of drivers who report using their cellphones to access the Internet while behind the wheel continues to rise, to a point where nearly one of four drivers are going online while driving, according to a national survey that has tracked the potentially deadly practice over the past five years."
Just as it was pointed out in the report, Stisim Drive said that going online while driving could indeed increase the risk of a car accident. As it must be, it stressed that drivers must avoid such distractions.
But to keep themselves safe always, besides that, it stated that their decision making and driving skill must also be sharpened. And that, it cited, is where the driving simulator games come in.
With driving simulation videos, Stisim Drive pointed out that drivers could practice various real-life road scenes. That, it said, makes one better in driving without having to actually do it, thus, avoiding any untoward incidents.
Of all the driving simulators though, the company encouraged the public to pick its own driving simulation systems. It is said that they are cost-effective and very reliable investments that could be used not just in driving instruction or training but also in research and patient assessment.
Moreover, it pointed that its STISIM Drive® software has a huge database of on-the-road scenes. And that, it said, offers more scenarios to practice on.
