Verizon wants our customers – and everyone else – to stay safe on the road.
Verizon recognizes that the misuse of mobile devices by drivers is a leading cause of distracted driving accidents. The same technology that lets us connect to the world can lead to tragedy when drivers choose to take their eyes off the road in favor of their mobile screens.
It’s not always easy to ignore that incoming text message or to resist the urge to adjust your GPS while driving, but it can mean the difference between life and death.
Verizon is committed to curbing this dangerous habit.
– We offer our wireless customers apps that encourage safer driving and block texting while driving.
– Through the Hum app, we offer drivers a smart Safety Score based on several factors, including phone use while driving. Customers can keep track of changes in their score and compare against friends and family.
– We also employ several best practices when it comes to phones we provide to our employees, including a feature that warns them to put their device down whenever they start driving.
A single accident involving distracted driving is one too many. So we’ll keep making efforts until our roads are safer for everyone.
