Many of us have an unexplainable bond with our cars, far beyond just a means of transport. Yet what many of us don’t want to think about, is the possibility of being involved in an accident. South African motorists face the reality of vehicle collisions everyday. Driving under the influence, speeding and distracted driving are the three largest causes of road accidents in South Africa.
Recent crime statistics indicated that approximately 14,000 people lose their lives through vehicle accidents on South African roads every year. Tens of thousands of others suffer sever and crippling injuries.
We all know the importance of obeying the rules of the road and driving responsibly, but the reality is that a serious accident can take place at any time. Matrix understands that in the event of an accident, every minute counts. We pride ourselves on our personal safety features, such as the Matrix Crash Alert system that contains a crash sensor which will alert the control room if you are involved in an accident.
How does Matrix Crash Alert work?
All MX3 units are fitted with an impact sensor that will send an alert if your vehicle is involved in an accident. Matrix will then immediately receive a signal from the unit. After assessing the situation, help will be dispatched to the exact location of the vehicle using the GPS co-ordinates from your Matrix unit.
Matrix’s Crash Alert feature provides peace of mind that emergency assistance is always at hand when you need it most.
