Car accident lawyers in Orlando are encouraged by new smartphone apps designed to reinforce safe driving habits. For instance, a recently introduced program from a company called Autoliv rates a driver’s actions behind the wheel.
Their smartphone app, Safety Score, “monitors in real-time acceleration, speed, braking, turning and phone use and compares it against Autoliv’s proprietary data algorithms and known causes of accidents and gives you a personal safe driving score,” according to the company. “You can then review your data and learn ways to raise your score, change your habits and become a safer driver.”
“Today, nearly 1.4 million people die in traffic fatalities every year and that number is expected to increase,” said Cecilia Sunnevång, Ph.D., Autoliv Vice President of Research. “Autoliv has been collecting, studying and acting on accident data for 65 years. We believe the road to saving more lives includes improving driver behavior. Safety Score, when used regularly provides a unique understanding of an individual’s safe-driving patterns and provides a framework for coaching and improving safe-driving habits.”
There are more than 1,000 car accidents every day in Florida. There were 30,000 car accidents in Orange County alone last year. Car accidents kill almost 3,000 people every year in the state and injure tens of thousands of people. Naturally, car accident lawyers support and encourage any measure to reduce the pain and suffering.
Developed by two MIT professors. The free safe driving app DriveWell uses sensors to record when a driver picks up and engages with the phone, breaks harshly, or speeds while driving. Would you use it? https://t.co/env8Afj75n #DistractedDriving #DriveWell
