Safe Drive Systems Combats Distracted Driving


don't text and drive

NEW YORK -- July 17, 2014: Distracted driving is the cause of 72% of car accidents, resulting in more than 15 people killed and another 1,200 injured each day in the United States (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). "Visual-manual tasks can degrade a driver's focus and increase the risk of getting into a crash up to three times," explains National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Administrator David L. Strickland on the dangers of distracted driving. The worst, perhaps, is the all-too-common texting while driving, which increases the likelihood of a crash by 23 times (Virginia Tech Transportation Institute).

Thankfully, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reveals that when a car is equipped with forward collision warning, lane departure warning, blind spot detection, and adaptive headlights, about 1 in 3 fatal crashes and 1 in 5 injury crashes can be prevented or mitigated. Rona Aharonson, CEO of Safe Drive Systems, leading anti-collision technology developer, adds that "when 90% of front-rear accidents can be prevented with only 1.5 seconds warning in advance, collision prevention technology becomes not a luxury but a necessity." (National Transportation Safety Board)

Safe Drive Systems' anti-collision technology provides the driver with 4 to 5 seconds of advanced warning, giving the driver additional time to react to imminent dangers. The advanced radar operates effectively in all weather conditions, analyzing up to 460 feet ahead of the driver 20 times per second, while the camera monitors if the driver is unintentionally drifting from the occupied lane. "Audio and visual Forward Collision Warnings, Lane Departure Warnings, and Headway Monitoring Warnings add an important extra level of protection that keeps the driver and passengers safe," explains Rona Aharonson.

Safe Drive Systems are available for installation and are compatible with most cars manufactured after the year 2006.
