Study Says Dialing Makes Distracted Driving the Riskiest, Stisim Drive Shares How Driving Simulation Could Help Keep Drivers Safe

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) New York, NY (PRWEB) January 06, 2014 Distracted driving injures and kills millions of people every year. However, of all the habits that could distract a driver, a study discovered that dialing makes driving the riskiest said a report from latimes.com dated January 01, 2014. In connection with it, Stisim Drive revealed how driving simulation could help drivers keep safe.


The report said that the study reached its conclusion by observing 42 novice drivers and 109 others who had been driving for 20 years, Stisim Drive shared. And that conclusion, it added, was published on Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Particularly, based on the report, the study discovered that dialing makes the probability of a driver getting a crash or near-crash 8.32 higher among the novice and 2.49 among the experienced than any other activity that poses danger. Included on those activities listed that could also cause risky driving were reaching a cellphone or any other object, texting, surfing, looking at things at the side of the road, and eating.

Below is a part of the report “The next time you’re tempted to make a phone call while you’re behind the wheel, remember this: Dialing while driving increases the risk of a crash or near-crash more than any other sort of distraction.

That’s one of the findings of a special report published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine. Other dangers identified in the report include reaching for a cellphone or other object; texting or using the Internet; looking at an object on the side of the road; and eating.” With the study's finding, drivers must strictly avoid dialing while behind the wheel. They must abstain as well from doing all the other things that could lead to distracted driving, Stisim Drive said.

However, it stated that distracted driving is not the only thing that could cause vehicular accidents. There are various other factors, as poor driving skills, that could bring them, it said. But then again, it stated that they could be improved to prevent mishaps on the road.

And to get that done, Stisim Drive asserted a driving simulator could effectively help with its imitation of real-road scenes that drivers could practice on. It added that it is also safe as it offers training in a stationary machine.

Nonetheless, of all the driving simulation systems, Stisim Drive said that its own are the best. It cited that's because they are integrated with a driving simulator software that is customizable and loaded with all possible road scenarios. Moreover, it stated that the data it provides is reliable and could also be used in instruction, research and even rehabilitation.
