Distracted driving is a worldwide public safety crisis. Every year it claims thousands of lives. It causes millions of dollars in damage. It costs companies many more millions in lawsuits, insurance claims and premium increases.
Government statistics and analysis show that a leading cause of distracted driving is unsafe use of mobile phones by drivers.
The Responsible Driver System (RDS), a Tango Mobility™ Solution, puts you in control of safer driving policies. With RDS, your drivers of fleet, transit, logistics, field service and other vehicles will be safer and more attentive.
Complementing “do not disturb” and similar usage blocking features on mobile phones, the RDS enforces your mobile phone usage policies in the mobile network itself.
That means your drivers cannot turn off controls or bypass them, except in cases you permit. You have complete control to determine where, when and how your drivers can make or receive calls, send SMS texts or use data services.
Because it is embedded in the wireless network, RDS can enforce policies on any mobile phone, to enhance on-phone safety controls and usage-restriction apps.
Policies can be as granular as you want, specifying mobile phone usage based on vehicle speed, time of day, location and other parameters. Emergency calls are permitted exceptions.
You can also create exceptions to permit drivers to call the dispatcher, or for accountable policy bypass in special circumstances. Inbound calls are dynamically rerouted in the way you choose, with urgent call notification to permit drivers to return calls when it is safe to do so.
