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. "
