As the world focuses on the dangers of distracted driving, specifically text messaging and mobile phone use by drivers, new voice activated technology emerges that will work with any mobile phone connected to any mobile carrier.
McMinnville, OR -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/09/2010 -- With over 250 Million mobile phones in use in the US, concerns mount over the inherent danger of driving while manually operating these mobile devices. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 800,000 drivers are using mobile phones “hands on” at any given moment in the US, and that such distracted driving led to nearly 6,000 deaths and over 500,000 traffic accident related injuries in 2008 alone.
The Nightly News, Internet networking sites, and blogosphere are riddled with dramatic accounts and concern, but will Americans give up their right to communicate from the driver’s seat?
In an effort to curb the loss of life and property damage, states all across the country have legislated stiff fines, and in some cases automatic jail time for repeat offenders, yet statistics still escalate.
The solution is not to prohibit communication, but to change the way we communicate. It is now possible to dial your phone, check and reply to voicemail, check and reply to email, even send text messages without touching your phone – simply with the power of your voice. This allows drivers to keep their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road at all times.
This technology is not tied to any specific phone, mobile device, or carrier. It will work with your existing phone, existing contract, and may even enable users to cut the cost of their service upon activation.
FDIVoice CEO, William J Andreoli, says “For literally pennies per day, anyone can utilize the power of this system. Who wouldn’t want their children, spouse, parents, or friends to drive more safely?
It’s the biggest no-brainer of the century…”
