On the Road to a Hands-Free World

When we hear about distracted driving, it’s typically about texting with friends, searching for a song, scrolling Instagram. But for many frontline workers without proper tools, essential communication to dispatch is often its own form of distracted driving.

The Dangers of Distracted Driving

Without a hands-free, eyes-free solution truck drivers have two options: pull over frequently to catch up on critical messages and updates or glance quickly at the phone while driving. It’s a lose-lose: too much time on the side of the road impacts revenue, customer expectations, and driving times, and a quick glance away can turn tragic.

How We're Distracted

Drivers without hands-free tools are often distracted in three different but preventable ways.
