Distracted Driving is a huge problem. Texting while driving statistics show that on average a driver’s eyes are taken off the road for 4.6 seconds — enough to cover the length of a football field when traveling 55 MPH. As a result annually an average of 3,000 people are killed and over half a million are injured due to distracted driving related accidents.
To help mitigate and prevent this issue we have partnered with Arbella Insurance to offer a text blocking technology system — The Cellcontrol Program.
“Cellcontrol’s award-winning technology eliminates the temptation to talk, text, email, and surf the web while driving. Arbella is subsidizing text-blocking technology (“Trigger”) in another important step toward helping drivers break the mobile phone addiction and keep their eyes on the road. The “trigger” device plugs into the onboard diagnostics port in your car and gives you the power to manage a driver’s phone usage while the car is in motion. It disables texting while the car is in use and can also be programmed to block incoming and outgoing calls, apps, email, and web browsing, if desired.”
The Cellcontrol Program will be offered at a reduced rate via Deland, Gibson and Arbella. The retail price is $125 but can be purchased through DG at $60 and for the first 700 customers the program will be offered at $25.
If you have teen drivers this is a perfect fit to add another layer of peace of mind – help protect your love ones and enroll!
