New Company Uses Technology To Curb Distracted Driving
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio, Sept. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- (Nationwide) -- Automobile accidents are the number one killer of teens today. They also account for more than $230 billion in financial costs. More than 20% of crashes that result in injury are linked to distracted driving and cell phone use is responsible for 18% of the fatalities that result from these crashes.
These startling statistics are why Jim Lipjanic developed StreetEyes, a revolutionary new business aimed at making the streets safer for everyone, one driver at a time. Headquartered in Youngstown, OH, this company has been in development for the past two years and is excited to announce its launch on a national level.
"Being an insurance agent for almost 10 years, I have been dealing with the anguish parents feel about their teens starting to drive," he said.
Through technology, drivers will be monitored so that you can see whether or not they are responsible on the road. StreetEyes is identifying independent operators all across the United States whose vehicles will be equipped with cameras that record video, display speed and GPS tracking. Customers will be able to review the video and react accordingly.
"All that is out there now for parents of teens and those concerned about elderly drivers is information. There is nothing to actually help them once they turn the keys over. StreetEyes will actually let you see what drivers are doing on the road, if they are following your rules and expectations," Lipjanic said.
Looking to the future, StreetEyes hopes that insurance companies will use its services as an incentive to policy holders by providing discounts for regularly monitored driving of high risk drivers. It also hopes to develop partnerships with driving schools and organizations aimed at curbing distracted driving.
Founded in September of 2011, StreetEyes is dedicated to making the streets safer for everyone. Through technology, drivers will be monitored so that you can see whether or not they are responsible on the road. StreetEyes will have independent operators all across the United States whose vehicles are equipped with cameras that record video, display speed and GPS tracking. Customers will be able to review the video and react accordingly so that together, we keep the streets safe for everyone.
