tXtBlocker, the premier supplier of solutions to prevent distracted driving incidents caused by using a cell phone while operating a motor vehicle, has introduced a new distracted driving text messaging solution in Ontario and all of Canada’s provinces.
The launch of the solution coincides with tXtBlocker’s sponsorship of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police annual R.I.D.E. Drive Safe! Campaign.
In order to eliminate texting, calling, and other forms of distracted driving on their roadways, this initiative was launched during Police Week.
Costing as little as $6.99 a month, the service helps customers to control when, where and how their phones are being used.
Parents, employers and organizations, with a simple download, can keep their loved ones and others safe on the road and thus can limit distractions at school or the worksite.
The service enjoys high customer satisfaction and is currently available through AT&T’s mobile app website and Best Buy (News - Alert) stores.
“We are pleased to announce the launch of tXtBlocker in Ontario and the rest of Canada. tXtBlocker is the leading technology solution to distracted driving incidents in the United States and is proud to have been selected as a partner in OACP’s unique outreach campaign in Canada,” said Stan Van Meter, CEO of tXtBlocker, in a press release.
“I’m very encouraged that the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police has taken a leading role in both educating the public and enforcing distracted driving laws. They intend to stop the growing epidemic of motorists using their mobile phone,” he continued.
Throughout the upcoming year, provincial, municipal, regional and First Nations police services have access to the Drive Safe! campaign information for use in their local traffic safety campaigns.
In related news, tXtBlocker, announced that Consumer Reports rated tXtBlocker as the most effective anti-texting product among all competing products they’ve tested.
