Fleet operators urged to participate in distracted driving survey

March 26, 2013

April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month and Aegis Mobility said it’s the ideal time to conduct its Third Annual Workplace Distracted Driving Survey.

Aegis Mobility was founded in 2006 to address the distracted while driving problem of cell phone use in vehicles.

The survey’s goal is to gather feedback from commercial fleet operators, safety professionals and risk managers and to analyze corporate attitudes toward employee use of mobile devices while driving. The survey takes about 3 minutes to complete.

“The increasing prevalence and growing capabilities of smart phones and tablets have increased the frequency with which today’s drivers are tempted to take their minds off of their driving,” according to the company’s website. “The potential for distracted driving poses an ominous challenge to any company’s risk management program and poses one of the greatest risks of injury or death for young drivers.”

Fleet operators who participate in the survey can also enter to win a free Samsung Galaxy Tab 2.
Aegis says responses will be completely anonymous and the company will share the survey results next month.
