Keeping drivers off the phone

Oct 01, 2012
A Leeds-based technology company, G2M Technologies, has launched a new system aimed at reducing road deaths caused by company drivers using their phones while at the wheel.

The product, called Bizprotect, makes it impossible for drivers to use their mobile phones so no phone calls (unless their company allows them to use a hands-free kit), no texting, no e-mailing or use of social media to distract drivers when they are driving.



Bizprotect is unique as it uses a patent pending system to differentiate between the drivers and passengers, thereby allowing passengers to use their phones whilst ensuring the driver can’t, even if he swaps between vehicles.


Aimed primarily at commercial fleets, it has a centrally monitored system that allows an administrator to configure the system remotely and be notified if anyone should try to tamper with it. It requires no vehicle hardware or installation.


Andrew Tillman, Founder of G2M Technologies said, “Distracted driving is an enormous problem. The cost to UK businesses from accidents caused by distracted driving is growing exponentially together with the devastating human cost. Many responsible companies already have no-phone-when-driving policies but until now they really have no way of policing or enforcing them.”


Under the Corporate Manslaughter Act, directors of businesses can be held liable for the actions of their employees so this protects them from a duty of care perspective as well as protecting the public from the risk of distracted drivers.
