Texting while driving is continually getting worse and Utah is getting a new technology device from a company called Safe Driving Systems. The company is putting out some new technology called the Key 2 Safe Driving Activator.
There have been thousands of stories of individuals who have lost their lives due to texting while driving and many families who have had to deal with the loss of a loved one. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration cell phones are now the #1 cause for distracted driver car accidents which results in killing more than 6,000 people in the United States each year.
The CEO of Safe Driving Systems, Mike Fahnert, has mass produced Safe Driving Systems products which have been developed at the University of Utah. Mike Fahnert said “It’s going to be a combination of education, enforcement and unfortunately it may take technology to turn it off” in reply to what it would take to stop the increasing amount of stories that involve texting while driving.
Installation and Configuration
How It Works
If the product is used properly talking and texting on a cell phone is impossible in a moving car. Fahnert said “Our device sends out a blue tooth signal that your smart phone picks up.” This makes it so when a car is turned on all calling and texting is disabled. 911 and two preselected phone numbers are not blocked just in case of emergencies.
If the Key 2 Safe Driving Activator is removed then there is a tattle tale software which will notify the person who installed the software with a text message. This will be very vital for parents who install the software on their children’s vehicles.
