Distracted driving kills eight people and injures over 1,100 more each day in the United States alone. Moreover auto accidents are the number one killer of teenagers between 16-19 years of age. These statistics aren’t just unique to the United States. Of the 7 billion people across the globe, 6.8 billion have phones. Accordingly, the instance of mobile phone use behind the wheel, and associated accidents, are on the rise.
“We started Cellcontrol with the goal of ending distracted driving and helping people become better drivers, and each trip, each mile taken by our growing list of customers and partners across the globe, moves us closer to accomplishing that goal every day,” said Cellcontrol CEO, Robert Guba. “We invite individuals and companies across the country to join us in putting the safety of their children, employees, family and company first by pledging to drive free from mobile distractions.”
Cellcontrol is encouraging drivers of all ages to commit to driving phone-free, in addition to getting involved in awareness efforts in their local communities and starting conversations around the topic. Companies can participate as well by taking the pledge and creating a distracted driving policy for their employees. Cellcontrol is also offering a special 20% discount for new consumers who purchase Cellcontrol, as well as incentives for new commercial clients.
