The Cost of Distracted Driving

Not only are distracted driving accidents causing insurance rates to increase for individuals, but businesses are losing money too. Distracted driving in a company-owned vehicle is one of the top insurance losses, averaging $100,000 per incident.

With the current Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Mandate that impacts fleet drivers and companies, the need for safe driving practices and mobile device mounting solutions is even greater. The ELD Mandate requires all commercial motor carriers and truck drivers to implement certified electronic logging devices by December 2017.
