USA: MiX Telematics North America’s second Thought Leadership white paper titled, “Distracted Driving” is now available online. The Thought Leadership series is written by driver safety experts and available to the public in a PDF format on the company’s website in the White Papers Section.
MiX Telematics’ Distracted Driving white paper discusses the social acceptance of multi-tasking when driving. In addition to highlighting activities that drivers often engage in that put others at risk, the white paper also highlights ways drivers can become more responsible in their driving activities. For fleet managers, the Distracted Driving white paper can be an important tool for educating employees about their role in becoming safer drivers.
Ken Creager, MiX Telematics North America president and CEO, stated that, “Our Thought Leadership white paper series is an invaluable tool for fleet managers. Our first white paper focused on the basic elements of driver safety that are critical to fleet management operations. We’re now going one step further to highlight distracted driving, such as texting while driving, which is making headlines in the news across the country. Distracted driving is not only an issue that fleet managers need to pay close attention to, but one that every driver needs to better understand in order to avoid its potentially deadly consequences.”
