Texting And Driving Safety Solutions For The Mobile Workforce

The rapidly expanding world of mobile gadgets is changing the way we work.  There are risks for organizations whose employees are often on the road and trying to stay ahead on their jobs.

Texting While Driving: Policy Is Just Not Enough

Most organizations today have a policy for how employees are supposed to use mobile devices on the road and elsewhere. However, agencies are often unaware how those devices truly are being used until an unfortunate accident occurs. The pressure to work while traveling is great. The job does not stop just because you are on the road to the next appointment; the drive to serve and solve problems is a tempting force. However, the safety and integrity of the organization and the citizens you serve is equally as important.

Protection + Awareness + Locating + Safefty Enforcement

By putting the organization in proactive position, Enterprise PLEDGE enables the organization to better enforce mobile device policy and identify employees who violate this policy and put the organization, themselves and others at risk. Restricting the functional usage of the device while on the move can help keep employees safe.

You can even configure policies for individual departments or employees, extending and customizing your mobile device policy as necessary.

Alarmed by the rising number of crashes caused by distracted drivers, Professor Daniel Raviv has invented a software program that can block a motorist from sending or receiving text messages from behind the wheel of a moving vehicle.

The invention was promising enough to prompt Florida Atlantic University to patent the program and to spur PortNexus, a socially conscious technology firm in Dania Beach, to begin implementing it.

"It blocks the driver only and allows passengers to continue to text," said Raviv, a professor of electrical engineering and computer science at FAU. "If we save one person's life, this is worth it, most definitely."

Michael Mayo, Sun Sentinel Columnist

After some late squabbling, it looks like a watered-down bill to ban texting while driving will finally pass the Florida Legislature and go to Gov. Scott for approval.

"It's a start — a way to get the ball rolling," said Marc Cannon, senior vice president of AutoNation, which supported the ban. "But it looks like the private sector is also going to have to get involved to tackle this issue further."
