According to the UN World Health Organization (WHO), road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death for children and young adults aged 5-29 years.
The millions of lives lost every year due to road traffic collisions is “an outrage”, said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. “It is an unacceptable price to pay for mobility”.

Young people are not invincible from #COVID19. The #coronavirus could put you in hospital for weeks, or even kill you. Even if you don’t get sick, the choices you make about where you go could be the difference between life and death for someone else. https://t.co/fOK1OkINbK https://twitter.com/WHO/status/1241049912017588225?s=20

Hmmm not impressed with this decision! The impact of 📱 distracted driving is proven to greatly raise the risk of fatal collisions creating devastation for victims & bereaved families (real hardship!).

crashes caused by cell phones
crashes caused by cell phones
Did you know…
… cell phone usage while driving leads to 1.6 million crashes each year?
… texting while driving is 6x more likely to cause an accident than driving drunk?
… 94% of drivers support a ban on texting while driving?
… 27% of all crashes are related to cell phones?
… sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for 5 seconds. At 55mph, that's like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed!
Dirk Fröhlich, CEO of ADAC Truckservice, Laichingen
" The use of cell phones while driving is one of the main risks in road freight transport. According to estimations by insurance companies, 25 percent of total costs are currently caused by truck drivers who are distracted by their smartphones. However, it makes a difference to read about the consequences or to experience them. Our roadside assistants can see the catastrophic impact in practice every day. It is our responsibility to make people aware of the fact that it is also possible to increase road safety effectively by simple means. This is why, on the one hand, we support the efforts of the EU and the FIA campaign 2 seconds. In addition, the SafeDrivePod system will become an optional part of our product portfolio "
Dominique van den Eijnde, SHE Manager at Heineken Nederland
" One of the top priorities of HEINEKEN worldwide is Road Safety. Driving is part of our daily business, from transporting commodities to our breweries till bringing the product to the (end) customer. In The Netherlands, HEINEKEN has installed Telematics (insights in behavior) and the SafeDrivePod (preventing distraction) in the vehicles of the HEINEKEN fleet. We believe that this supports a safer environment on the road, both for the employees as for the other road users. "
Joop van Boerdonk, Managing Director Canon Nederland N.V.
" I recognize the rising number of traffic casualties in the Netherlands as a major social problem. The rise is mainly due to distractions caused by the use of the smartphone. As a company, we feel responsible for the safety of our employees and those of other road users. That is why we want to promote a safe driving style. SafeDrivePod plays an important role in this. That is why it was a logic choice for us to provide this smart technical solution to the over 700 lease cars of the Canon employees who are on the road every day. "
Lidy van Hout, Manager HR G4S(NL)
" The G4S security company is committed to creating a safe working environment for its customers and employees on a daily basis. Every day we have an average of 800 vehicles on the street. In addition to the safe road program, we also offer our employees the inclusion of SafeDrivePod, an excellent preventive solution, which helps to reduce the risk of accidents. "
