A local tech guru is trying to put an end to texting and driving. 25-year-old, Freddie Figgers is making his mark in the cell phone industry. Figger’s has a created a multi-user profile cell phone that allows users to disable the texting feature. Figgers tells us, “Mom, Dad, Son, and Daughter can all use this phone. There are different profiles, it’s similar to a windows computer.” If the cell phone is in motion over 10 miles per hour, it will not allow you to send or receive a text. Figger’s said he wanted to create something that would set him apart.
Figgers is the youngest U.S. citizen to operate his own cell phone company using a federal communications commission license. The cell phone company currently has 4,000 customers nationwide. Figgers also created a device that helps doctors monitor patients remotely. That device is currently is being used at the Miami Jackson Memorial Hospital.
FIGGERS F1 CELLULAR PHONE WILL REDUCE ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY TEXTING & DRIVING
Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of road accidents. Furthermore, because text messaging requires visual, manual and cognitive attention from the driver, it is one of the most alarming distractions. In fact, statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration revealed that for drivers 15-19 years old involved in fatal crashes, 15 percent of the drivers were distracted by the use of cell phones.
Touted as one of the most powerful and safest cell phone on the market. The Figgers F1 cell phone has a built-in mechanism that prevents texting and driving. The F1 detects motion when the car is in motion over 10 miles per hour on the driver side of a USA vehicle and puts it into a safe mode; thereby disabling any and all distractions while driving all this without missing a single call.
The Figgers F1 cell phone is one of the most advanced smartphones yet. But the advanced features such as its storage capacity, talk time, battery and high megapixel front and rear facing camera combined with its dynamic safety feature makes it the iPhone 6s Plus’ biggest rival.
The Figgers F1 cell phone is the brainchild of Freddie Figgers—an inventor, holder of 4 US patents and one of the youngest Americans to own and operate an independent, U.S. based telecommunications company that is regulated by the Federal Communication Commission.
When asked about his motivation for creating this cell phone, Figgers said: “Cell phone use, especially texting, has become so ingrained in society that far too many people ignore laws banning the practice. Currently, 46 states prohibit cell phone use while driving. If laws are not changing these behaviors then why can’t technology? Police say that even with laws, teenagers, in particular, are texting while driving and causing tragic accidents, “I mean all the laws in the world can’t change human behavior, but the Figgers F1 can. That’s why I invented the Figgers F1 cell phone.”
The Figgers F1 cell phone is available from Figgers Communication Inc for $399.99. The company also offers cellular service along with the F1 for $50 per month. This includes unlimited 4G LTE Data, unlimited talk, and text on Figgers nationwide coverage network along with unlimited texting to over 100+ countries all included in this one price.
