By now, most are aware of the dangers of distracted driving. It recently surpassed drunk driving as the number one cause of road accident fatalities, causing 81 deaths in 2012 compared to 55 drinking driving deaths in 2013. Last year, police issued 51,000 tickets for distracted driving offences – many of which involved texting or emailing while driving.

The focus on distracted driving has boosted demand for innovative technologies designed to prevent cell phone use by drivers.
