DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- Cellcontrol, the world's technology leader in stopping distracted driving, announced today that its multi-award winning DriveID technology that can disable multiple mobile devices as soon as a vehicle moves, will be shown during live in-vehicle demos during the Great American Trucking Show taking place today through Saturday in Dallas, Texas. In partnership with Forward Thinking System, Cellcontrol's DriveID will be available at their exhibit booth and during in-vehicle demos throughout the show. Cellcontrol is used by fleet owners throughout the country, in part because it helps owners and their drivers comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety rules that prohibit the use of handheld mobile devices. Under the rules, a commercial carrier can receive up to $11,000 (USD) in civil penalties if one of its drivers is caught driving distracted.
In order to address inherent safety concerns and strict regulations regarding distracted driving in the fleet industry, Forward Thinking System announced its partnership earlier this year with Cellcontrol at the 2014 Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky. The strategic partnership empowers fleet managers to help commercial vehicle drivers resist the temptation to use a mobile device behind the wheel.
The award-winning Cellcontrol technology is offered as an extension of Forward Thinking System's comprehensive fleet management solution that provides electronic Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administrator complaint log books, International Fuel Tax Agreement reporting, driver behavior analysis, dispatch, engine information and advanced GPS tracking.
The technology provided by Cellcontrol works in tandem with Forward Thinking System's integrated platform -- enabling customers to effectively keep drivers from using their mobile phones to call, email, text or surf the Internet while a vehicle is in motion through a patented signaling system. Customers can choose from two Cellcontrol hardware product lines; legacy vehicle databus connected Trigger or DriveID -- the new windshield mounted, cable-free, device that identifies the driver, leaving passengers free to talk, text, email or browse. Both solutions block unauthorized usage of company-issued or personal mobile devices including smartphones running on Android, iOS or Blackberry operating systems.
"Distracted driving in the trucking industry is both costly and very dangerous causing 28% of all fleet related accidents," said Kevin Coppolino, vice president of corporate development at Cellcontrol. "Forward Thinking System customers can now receive accurate and reliable enforcement of their safe driving policies, and keep themselves in compliance with the federal guidelines."
For additional information on Cellcontrol's DriveID and to schedule an in-car demo of the technology, please visit the Forward Thinking Systems booth #15140 at the Great America Trucking Show, Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center, tomorrow through Saturday, August 23 or visit http://www.ftsgps.com/.

The easy-to-use Cellcontrol solution takes less than a minute per vehicle to install and activate, is simple to administer, and provides real-time, accurate exception and trend reporting to fleet managers in order to enforce a company's cellphone policy.
