Cellcontrol Reports Distracted Driving
Dec 17, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Cellcontrol, a developer of distracted driving solutions, announced that tablets, laptops and other mobile devices (i.e. Intermec, Motorola and others) are becoming a bigger distraction than cell phones for employees.
In a release, the Company noted that over 50 percent of inquiries by fleet managers since the beginning of 2012 revealed that laptop and tablet use by their on-the-go employees was a bigger risk concern than cell phone use while driving.
"Mobile devices like tablets and laptops are one of the most overlooked products when it comes to distracted driving and more attention and enforcement should be considered by businesses that have mobile employees, regardless of whether or not they're using a company owned vehicle," said Kevin Coppolino, Vice President Corporate Development. "These types of mobile devices not only take a driver's complete attention off the roadway, making them more of a distraction than a cell phone, but can also become a projectile in an accident, causing additional injuries if the devices are not properly secured."
