SafeDrivePod, the company that refined the solution for reducing distractions when driving by limiting smartphone use, has been awarded the prestigious Fleet Safety Innovation Award.
The prize was awarded on Thursday 11 October in Birmingham during the Fleet Safety Awards, the annual event organised by Brake, the charitable organisation for street safety.
Of the 9 companies short-listed, SafeDrivePod won the prize for “The product that does the most to improve fleet safety via innovation”, distinguishing itself with its pioneering approach and success in preventing driver distraction caused by smartphone usage.
The promoter and founder of SafeDrivePod, Paul Hendriks, declared: “The prize shows recognition of our objective which is that of avoiding thousands of deaths and injuries on the road all across the world. The distraction of a smartphone is one of the greatest threats to road safety. SafeDrivePod blocks the use of the telephone by the driver in a moving vehicle.”
The company, which has its headquarters in the Netherlands, operates in over 20 countries with many clients all across the world, including the managers and suppliers of fleet services, production companies, and insurance firms. In Italy, this revolutionary solution was put on the market by Evolvea Mobility, a company controlled by Gruppo Filippetti.
