Can a new device put a stop to distracted driving?

Autonomous vehicles are in development, but they aren’t yet mainstream. This means, of course, that we need to be, as drivers, alert, awake and aware at all times behind the wheel of our vehicles. Sadly, many of us take our responsibilities as drivers for granted. We drive while distracted or while fatigued, or even after drinking to excess.

A new device might help drivers, particularly young drivers, stay focused on the road ahead. The Ridy Distracted Driving Alert Device uses recent advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning to scan a driver’s face and hands to determine focus. If the device detects a distracted driver or one who is nodding off, it sounds an audible alarm to remind that driver to get back to the business at hand. The device is affordable, installs in seconds, requires no wireless connection or monitoring, and can go in any model of vehicle (not just newer ones).

Distracted driving, in particular texting and using cellphones behind the wheel, causes hundreds of thousands of accidents each year. If this new machine can stop even a small portion of those, it will be worth it. Since this device is relatively new to the mainstream tech market, though, there aren’t statistics available about success rates when it comes to actually stopping distracted drivers.

If you or someone you love is hurt in an accident caused by a distracted driver, you are not alone. An experienced personal injury attorney can give you more information about recovering compensation for your injuries, your lost wages, the damage to your property, and the pain and suffering caused by the accident.
