The mobile phone has become a constant companion. Or do you know the last time you left your apartment or house without a smartphone? Basically no problem. But if you can’t keep your hands off your digital extension in the car, you’re not only endangering yourself, but also others.

Distraction and inattentiveness are the most common causes of accidents on Swiss roads. This also includes entering navigation destinations, changing the music or simply enjoying the beautiful view.
