We exist to reduce distracted driving crashes.

ORIGOSafeDriver is on a mission to make cell phone safety the norm.

ORIGOSafeDriver was born out of personal experience. When one of the founders of the company was rear ended by a distracted driver, he went to work developing the most effective, fool proof cell phone safety solution on the market. Our team of engineers and developers have now brought that solution to market with a passion for reducing distracted driving crashes, damage, and fatalities.

We give back to end this epidemic.

We decided to put our money where our mouth is.

In the United States, each year, there are 500,000 injuries and 3,600 deaths related to distracted driving. We feel that distracted driving has become an epidemic that wreaks havoc on families and businesses across the country. Our leadership is passionate about bringing an end to distracted driving and texting while driving, so we are donating to non-profit organizations that bring awareness to the dangerous driving habits related to cell phone use.
