The product is a combination of three elements:
The SafeDrivePod itself, that is mounted somewhere in the car and sends out a wireless radio signal to indicate when the car is driving.
A powerful app running on your phone that shuts off all access to apps when you are driving. You are allowed to make hands-free phone calls and use your navigation apps.
An important aspect of our concept is your safety. Your manager made a deal with you to get you and the car home safely. He will get informed about how you use the SafeDrivePod system.
Fleet managers want their drivers to arrive home safely every day. Instead they deal with increased numbers of car accidents and increased cost of claims. An alarming 25% of the total cost of car damage is related to the driver being distracted by his or her smartphone.
SafeDrivePod prevents smartphone caused distraction during driving. SafeDrivePod offers a complete solution that ensures the touch screen of the smartphone is blocked during driving.
A SafeDrivePod in each vehicle ensures fleet managers that drivers cannot use their smartphones during driving. This leads to a reduction in car damage and cost from claims. Above all, it contributes to improved road safety and more certainty that employees will arrive home safely.Learn more!

Although it is difficult to get the hard numbers, for obvious reasons, it is estimated that 25 percent of all car accidents happen because the driver was distracted by his or her smartphone. A third of all employees are texting while driving and 30% of this group experienced a near-car accident as a result of texting. The experience did not change their behavior! Employees tend to continue texting and swiping whilst driving. Business drivers that use their smartphone during driving are younger than the average business driver and almost half of them (46%) are under the age of 41.
