Although the world has been witnessing a huge advancement in technology and innovation, there still lies a large gap in nullifying the violent crime rates. The FBI’s crime statistics seem to be on the rise with someone or the other being a victim every 26 seconds. From sexual assaults happening every 2 minutes to 2,300 people going missing each day due to abduction, it’s become terrifying to sustain peacefully in this planet we so prefer to call our home. Not only this, there’s a massive number of individuals who face fatality because of driving alone every 16 minutes which often results in such a drastic conclusion due to the inability to identify the victim’s exact location while driving.
Personal safety is undoubtedly a right every individual should culture effectively but these horrifying numbers are telling a different story altogether. It’s time the benefits of real-time location trackers are nurtured in this sphere of living as well.
