Distracted Driving: Wake-Up Call for Companies – I Promise This Will get Your Attention!
Recent legal cases have underscored the harsh reality—companies are increasingly liable for distracted driving incidents involving their employees.
In one shocking case, a Florida company faced a staggering $1 billion jury verdict for having a policy but failing to enforce it. The message is clear: having a policy alone is not enough.
In another tragic incident, a company executive was sentenced to 30 years in prison after using Excel on his phone while driving, resulting in the tragic death of a 9-year-old boy.
So, what will it take for companies to get involved and realize that a policy is not enough, as proven in the courts?
It’s time for organizations to take proactive steps to ensure the safety of their employees, customers, and communities. Embrace solutions that not only set policies but also enforce them effectively, ensuring a distraction-free workplace on wheels.
