New York, NY (PRWEB) November 19, 2013

A driving simulation research recently showed the students of Valley High School in Iowa the danger that comes with texting while driving. The event was courtesy of a telecommunications company, said in a report from woi-tv.com. In connection with it, Stisim Drive suggested a driving simulator software that it stated could further help drivers stay safer.

According to the report, which was published on November 05, 2013, 11 teens die every year due to texting while driving, Stisim Drive shared. And as it cited, that's because the habit increases the chance of an accident to happen by 23 times more according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Because of the huge risk it presents, it was said in the report that texting while behind the wheel should be considered more dangerous than drunk driving, especially among teens, Stisim Drive relayed. And as it related, that's because texting is much more common among teenagers and they are novices in driving.

Below is an excerpt from the said report by woi-tv.com.

“Did you know that when you text and drive, you are 23 times more likely to get into an accident? That's according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

They also say 11 teens die every day because of texting and driving. You see it so often, it's easy to forget it's been illegal in Iowa for three years.”

Indeed, texting is a distraction when driving, Stisim Drive agreed to the driving simulation research. Given that, drivers must stop doing it to avoid vehicular accidents, it stated.

But, besides it, there are many other habits a driver must change for a safer trip. And with that, Stisim Drive said it's driving simulator software could definitely help.

As the company cited, its STISIM Drive® software is loaded with various real-road scenarios. That, it said, offers drivers a wide range of traffic situations to practice on. And consequently, that makes them better in on-the-road decision-making and maneuvering, it added.

Moreover, Stisim Drive cited that its driving simulator system is cost-effective and reliable. Its output, it pointed out, could even be used in assessing patients and rehabilitating them from mild to major injuries.
