New York, NY (PRWEB) February 25, 2014

A post from washingtonpost.com dated February 24, 2014, said that according to CDC, nine people die everyday because of distracted driving. In response to it, Stisim Drive recommended driving simulation training to help curb the number of road accidents.

The post said that besides the deaths, distracted driving also causes 1, 060 injuries daily. Those numbers, it detailed, are particularly caused by activities as using a cell phone, texting and eating while driving. But among all of them, it added that texting-while-behind-the-wheel is the most dangerous distraction.

In terms of hours, the report shared that distracted driving leads to a death every 2.6 hours and 44 injuries every one hour. And based on the data of CDC, it related that in 2010, there were 3,267 people who died and 416,000 injured because of it. The deaths, it relayed, even increased in 2011 to 3,331 and injuries only slightly decreased to 387,000.

Below is a part of the said post.

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found a new way to get people’s attention to what it calls the growing problem of distracted driving: it says that every day nine people die and 1,060 people are hurt in crashes where distraction is reported as a cause.

That’s a death every 2.6 hours, and 44 injuries an hour. And that toll of carnage is just from crashes that police investigators link to distracted driving. Nobody knows what percentage of the other crashes were caused by distraction.”

Stisim Drive commented that given all the figures of deaths and injuries distracted driving could bring, everyone must take it seriously to always drive safely. Nevertheless, it stated that driving distractions aren't the only ones that could cause traffic accidents.

As it cited, poor driving skills and on-the-road decision-making could also lead to untoward incidents. And so, to help the chances of them happening, Stisim Drive advised drivers to go through a driving simulation training.

With driving simulation systems, the company said that anyone could learn how to drive or improve his skill on it safely. It stated that there is no accident to worry about so one could practice his response even in the most-dangerous road scenario possible.

However, of all the driving simulators, Stisim Drive said that its own are the best. For one, it cited that they were developed for more than 25 years, hence, they've been perfected. Apart from that, it stated that the driving simulation software – Stisim Drive Software – running in them is loaded with all the possible traffic scenes. And additionally, it assured that the data they provide are reliable.
