Eradicate distractions. Enhance safety. Economize costs.
In the fast-paced world we inhabit, distracted driving has emerged as a grave issue. 2019 saw an alarming spike in distraction-related accidents in the United States, with a staggering 424,000 people injured. Tragically, driver distractions led to the unfortunate loss of 3,192 lives, and in an overwhelming 94% of these fatal cases, screens were identified as the primary distractors.
Founded in 2003, blank-it is at the forefront of the crusade against distracted driving, offering an advanced in-vehicle screen blanking safety software. Designed to blank screens when vehicles are in motion, our innovative solution has been implemented primarily in warehouses (forklifts) and by emergency responders (police cruisers and ambulances) to significantly mitigate accidents caused by driver distractions. Our clients, which include industry giants such as Ford USA, Honda de Mexico, Michelin North America, and BP Lubricants, rely on us to safeguard their fleets and reduce operational risks.
With blank-it, you can pave the way towards safer, more efficient operations.
