Corporations need a solution to keep their employees from driving distracted. The elements that make up an effective policy are awareness, education, clear policy and providing a tool to prevent the behavior.
The Textlimit smartphone app is a key part of any company policy. The app is easy to use, provides a flexible tool for the company and the employee and is very affordable at only $24.99 per phone per year.
Today, there are more than 40 states with laws that ban texting (email, web surfing) and driving. In many states, there are laws that prohibit using the handset while driving altogether. As a company with employees on the road, you need to insure their compliance with these laws and implement an effective policy. Besides state traffic laws, there are also OSHA regulations that prohibit having employees text and drive.

If you haven’t done anything to reduce your exposure to vicarious liability, you should take action on this important issue now! You should also check with your insurance provider for potential changes to your commercial policy. Many insurance companies are changing their policies to limit their exposure to large jury awards. These changes could mean they will only pay to defend lawsuits arising from a distracted driving accident but they will not pay an award.
This is a serious issue for companies large and small and failure to take action on this growing issue could be catastrophic. Don’t wait, download Textlimit today for all of your employees.
