Riggins Oil has announced a new partnership that seeks to prevent distracted driving in its fleet of over 75 trucks. The partner, Cellcontrol, is the world’s leading technology that stops distracted driving by disabling mobile devices while a vehicle is in motion. Powered by patented non-pairing Bluetooth technology, Cellcontrol prevents drivers from inappropriately using their phones to text, email, browse the web, etc. To do this, Riggins installed Cellcontrol’s “trigger” hardware in each truck’s computer. Now when Riggins drivers are in transit, they will have fewer distractions so that they can focus on driving safely.
“At Riggins, safety is our number one priority – not just for our own fleet, but for the communities we serve,” said Matthew Riggins, Strategy Director at Riggins. “Since my great grandfather founded the company in 1926, we have been guided by a commitment to responsibility and reliability for our customers and communities, and this innovative new technology is in line with these core values.”
