What is DriveCommander®?

DriveCommander® is an app for smartphones and tablets that helps to prevent distracted driving by automatically detecting driving status and preventing the driver from using certain features of the device whilst the vehicle is in motion. 

Using DriveCommander® you can:

  • 
Promote the safe, legal and responsible use of mobile device while driving
  • Enforce compliance with corporate safe driving policies
  • Reduce your risk of prosecution
  • Reduce your employees risk of accidents
  • Ensure legal compliance
  • Comply with future legislation

The “Driving at Work” Guide from the UK Health and Safety Executive makes it clear that employers have a duty under health and safety law to manage the risks faced by their employees. One of the biggest risks they face is when using mobile phones while at the wheel.

80% of UK Employers have written mobile phone policies yet drivers continue to use mobile phones.

There are 29,000 accidents each year in the UK involving distracted driving.
