A safety group known as Safer Ways has decided to undertake the large task of finding a device to put an end to texting while driving. ‘Five seconds is the average time your eyes are off the road while texting. When traveling at 55mph, that’s enough time to cover the length of a football field.’ [1] 


Safer Ways is looking for a company to help us put an end to the distraction of cell phones while driving. It is important that your company understands the importance of the issue. Safer Ways is looking for a company that will 1) test the difference texting makes on reaction times and 2) design a prototype that will eliminate the distraction of cell phones while driving. If the Board agrees with your solution, your company will be chosen to work with legislature to make it the law for every vehicle to have your device.


Your company is a state of the art company that is very good at cutting edge technology. Your company has been chosen to be one of the finalists in our search for a company that will be able to help put an end to distracted driving.
