TextNinja is very happy to be part of the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, helping to raise distracted driving awareness! It is in honor to take part of something so historically large in size and importance in the automobile innovation scene.
As we race towards autonomous cars and ever-improving urban mobility through a connected car revolution, it is easy to get swept up in the latest and greatest automotive trends. Of course there has always been a place for safety at the Auto Show, and exhibitors give a lot of attention to how ‘safe’ their brands are in the eyes of the public. But until every car, old clunker or shiny new, is somehow a distraction-free environment for drivers, distracted driving is a safety topic worth discussing.
For starters, it needs to address the root cause. Find out what TextNinja founder Jim Ramirez thinks that is as he chats with Tom and Tony from Bootstrapping in America about preventing distracted driving. Does this solution to texting while driving have a chance?
TextNinja aims to give you the tools to stop texting and driving, and make the process easier and more accessible. But it’s hard to solve this problem without understanding the fundamental causes of texting and driving. Beneath the alarming fatality and collision statistics, before the need for legislative measures, and behind all of the national campaigns for awareness against texting while driving is a psychological human element that, for most, is unavoidable.
In November, 2015, we launched a Kickstarter campaign. The goal was to share our solution on how to stop texting and driving with as many people as possible. Why? Because this is an issue that’s going to take more than money, more than a few backers, and more than gimmicks to solve. This campaign was our first step towards solving distracted driving.
Spoiler alert: it’s not just teens. Parents, employees, and just about every type of demographic do their fair share of texting behind the wheel. Even a radio host will admit to it on the air! Watch and learn more of the facts about texting while driving as TextNinja founder Jim Ramirez talks with Scott Kitun from Tomorrow’s Business Today on WGN Radio.
