Motor vehicle crashes are regarded as the 9th leading cause of death globally. With the lives of about 1.9 million expected to be taken annually by 2020. When a company’s driver or any other staff is involved in a crash, it attracts a lot of indirect costs (whether the worker was driving on or off the job) like recovery time, repairing, hiring other vehicle, re-staffing, retraining and lost productivity. A Harvard risk analysis study estimated the annual cost of crashes caused by distracted driving to be $43 billion. And the end of the year is known to be peak for most crashes
