In part 1, we explored the statistics on distracted driving to find out how many text message distractions it takes to cause a collision behind the wheel. We found that it takes on average around 97,000 text distractions to cause a crash. Now, let’s put a monetary value on this concept, and see if the risk is relevant enough to prevent texting and driving!
We are very excited to announce our new partnership with Texting Thumb Bands from Denver, CO! For the past 10 years, they have have been running one of the most successful distracted driving awareness campaigns and simple reminder programs in the country. By joining forces, TextNinja’s texting and driving solution is added to this already powerful outreach.
In September, we announced a new safety partnership with the Anthony Phoenix Branca Foundation (or APB Foundation) and we’re very excited about the synergy of our ninjas with APB Foundation’s Bandana Army! It’s proof of our distracted driving Campaign feature and the power of meaningful partnerships.
Widespread campaigns from the government, other apps to stop texting and driving, and national safety organizations are contributing to growing levels of awareness about distracted driving. But for most people, it’s all-too-easy to acknowledge the dangerous statistics, and then quickly forget the relevance to their own lives.
So what is the best app to stop texting and driving? The jury is still out. Watch as we compete on Bootstrapping in America’s XL competition for a $25,000 investment into our company. We’re competing against 9 other startups for a chance to win an investment from the TastyTrade network. We qualified for the competition, and now we get a two minute pitch, plus a Q&A Analysis session with Kristi Ross and Tom Sosnoff, both who admit that they need TextNinja!
