Carol Stream, Ill. – June 7, 2012 – If you are looking for a place to learn more about distracted driving, your search is over. Connected World magazine today launched a new Webpage dedicated to educating visitors on the dangers of distracted driving and the technology available to aid in its prevention.

Located online as part of the Connected World magazine Website, the publication’s newest addition provides a one-stop shop for distracted-driving details, including the latest content and statistics, as well as the Safe Driving Pledge for drivers to declare their commitment to safe driving.

“We have come to a point where there can be no further excuses?we must use technology responsibly as a society. Our new page helps to ensure all drivers have an up-to-date, easy-to-navigate destination to find out what they need to know about distracted driving,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World. “Distracted driving is a serious, life-threatening danger that is plaguing our roadways. I encourage all drivers, young and old, to educate themselves and pledge to be distraction free on the road.”

In addition, the new page also introduces visitors to the realm of technology available to cut down on distracted driving while in transit.

“From a handsfree service from Voice Assist to driver safety and fleet-management solutions from MiX Telematics, technology can support those who wish to stay connected while on the road,” says Mike Carrozzo, chief editor, Connected World. “Businesses and consumers alike must take advantage of these solutions when any alternative is putting them in a life-or-death situation.”

Those taking the Safe Driving Pledge will also receive special offers for their responsibility. As a commitment to its readers, Connected World is also giving free subscriptions to pledgetakers.

Visit the Connected World Website and take the pledge today. For even more information and to see this technology in person, check out the Connected World Conference, June 11-13 in St. Charles, Ill., which will feature a distracted-driving pavilion in the exhibit hall.
