TextHALT Technologies LLC, TextHALT mobile application disables some of the phone’s functionality when a driving situation is detected, locking the driver’s cell phone screen and redirecting calls to voice mail, while allowing access to three key contacts. Once TextHALT recognizes that the phone is traveling faster than 10 mph, it disables the phone’s texting features so text messages cannot be sent or received. The software automatically locks the phone during driving to prevent calls, texts, and e-mails. It also sends auto-reply messages to incoming texts and e-mails. Customizable and flexible to enforce most corporate distracted driving policies.

When employees use hand-held cell phones while driving, whether to text message, read and respond to e-mails, or even make phone calls, they are posing a serious danger to themselves, other motorists, and the company’s bottom line.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), on-the-job crashes cost employers more than $24,500 per crash, $150,000 per injury, and $3.6 million per fatality. And distracted driving caused by hand-held mobile device use is an emerging contributor to these accidents.
Employers are often held liable in distracted driving cases because of a legal doctrine known as “vicarious liability,” which charges employers with legal responsibility if the negligent act is committed by an employee acting within the “general scope” of his or her employment.
Also at stake for fleets is the risk of penalties and fees for violating state laws cracking down on cell phone use while driving. TextHALT works with companies that have fleet services and wants to prevent their employees from driving and texting.
