AAA Survey Highlights Increased Concerns Related to Distracted Driving
The AAA Traffic Safety Culture Index (TSCI) was recently released and, amongst its findings, concluded:
- Nearly 90% of respondents say that distracted drivers are a somewhat or much bigger risk today than three years ago
- Approximately 95% of respondents said that texting or emailing while driving is perceived as a somewhat or very serious threat to their personal safety
And, yet, despite this conscious awareness of the danger, more than a third of respondents admit to reading messages in the past 30 days while driving.
This "Do as I Say, Not as I Do" attitude continues to be a fundamental issue that affects the safety of our roadways.
Aegis is addressing the problem with solutions that automatically place a device in safe mode while driving and eliminate dangerous distractions until the vehicle has stopped moving.
