ZoomSafer Introduces Safe DialTM Technology to Help FMCSA-Regulated Fleet Operators Enforce Cell Phone Use Policies

ZoomSafer announced today a new release of its patented FleetSafer® Mobile safe driving software that is the first and only distracted driving solution to fully foster compliance with the new (FMCSA) guidelines on hand-held mobile phone use while driving a commercial vehicle. In November 2011, the FMCSA and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) handed down a new joint rule prohibiting interstate truck and bus drivers from using hand-held mobile phones while driving, with significant civil and financial penalties attached for both individuals and motor carriers.

“This latest enhancement to our FleetSafer Mobile safe driving software provides corporate fleet operators with a simple, affordable way to promote safe, legal and FMCSA-compliant use of mobile phones while driving.”

FleetSafer Mobile with SafeDialTM enables companies to ensure that employee drivers’ cell phone usage is fully compatible with FMCSA regulations. Patented software for smartphones, FleetSafer Mobile is the only solution that not only prevents texting and emailing while driving but also provides inbound and outbound call management in a manner compliant with the FMCSA’s requirement that any mobile phone calls made while driving be “one-touch” and hands-free in nature.

“The FMCSA’s ban on hand-held use of mobile phones while driving is an important step forward in solving the serious issue of distracted driving, but the rule provides employers with no guidance on how to foster employee compliance,” said ZoomSafer CEO Matt Howard. “This latest enhancement to our FleetSafer Mobile safe driving software provides corporate fleet operators with a simple, affordable way to promote safe, legal and FMCSA-compliant use of mobile phones while driving.”
