The Talkuccino(TM) App keeps you awake while driving by helping you engage in phone conversations with other people, on topics of mutual interest.
Drivers most often can hardlyÂ keep their eyes open, I know my dad is one of those, he claims driving is like a sleeping pill for him, specifically at night. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safetyâs annual Traffic Safety Culture Index came to similar conclusions. Â More than a third of drivers report having fallen asleep behind the wheel at some point in their lives, and more than one in ten has fallen asleep behind the wheel in the past year.
A FoundationÂ studyÂ completed in November 2014 found that drowsy driving impact our roads immensely.Â Drowsy drivers are involved in an estimated 21% of fatal crashes, up from 16.5% from theÂ previous 2010 study. It was found thatÂ most drivers drift out of their lanes or off the road and are oftenÂ theÂ crash victims in single-car crashes.
Drivers agreeÂ that driving when youâre too tired to keep your eyes open, is risky. Â Almost every driver surveyed in our Traffic Safety Culture Index surveys â 96% â reported that they find driving while extremely drowsy âunacceptable.â
Many people are inclined to apply their knowledge of drowsy-driving risks to others, but not themselves, in my case I have decided to do something about it to help resolve the problem in the shape of the Talkuccino app.
The Talkuccino(TM) Â app offer drivers a wayÂ for managing the risks of drowsy driving by helping them to engage with other people in phone conversations that will keep them awake.
