Havis Screen Blanking Reduces Driver Distraction


Distracted driving has a cost.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crashes in which at least one driver was identified as being distracted resulted in 3,267 fatalities, 735,000 nonfatal injuries and damaged 3.3 million vehicles in property-damage-only crashes in 2010.

This represents about 10 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities and 18 percent of all nonfatal crashes. These crashes cost $39.7 billion in 2010, roughly 16 percent of all economic costs from motor vehicle crashes.

Figures like these illustrate the importance of employees staying focused behind the wheel. It\’s why Havis recently introduced its new Screen Blanking Solutions to help combat driver distraction.

Powered by Blank-It, screen blanking provides an easy, safe and legally compliant way to manage in-vehicle computer displays and prevent driver distraction.
