Long Island's Premiere Limousine Service

P: (631) 587-8500
As you know, there are smartphone apps for just about every aspect of travel. Looking for a GPS app that shows real updates of traffic and accidents? Done. Need a last minute hotel tonight in your location? Easy peasy. But other than apps in particular - check out how smartphones themselves have changed the way we travel:

In-flight social networks
- Have you flown Virgin America recently? Their in-flight social network lets you use your iPhones to connect with other passengers at the gate or in the air! What’s the reason for this? This system was designed with the business traveler in mind, hoping they could take advantage of some downtime in flight and make some new professional connections.


Unlocking a room - Who needs to worry about room keys anymore? Starting this week, guests at ten Starwood Hotels around the world will be able to use their smartphones as room keys. Guests can check in using the Starwood app, get their room number, hold their phones up to the door, and the device’s Bluetooth connection will activate the lockpad. The technology will be available in all 150 Aloft, Element, and W Hotels by early next year. 


A smartphone carry on - Enter the world’s first smart, connected carry on! From your smartphone, you can lock and unlock it, track its location, be notified if you are leaving it behind and find out more about your travel habits with data tracking. Plus, you can charge your phone or other devices several times with the build in battery charger - boom. This indiegogo project started last month and will close on November 24th - and its already raised $785,946 of its $50,000 goal. Preorder yours today!

Perhaps we should start figuring out an app of our own!

Drowsy Driving Prevention Week

Long Island's Premiere Limousine Service
P: (631) 587-8500
 
 
Annually following daylight savings time, the National Sleep Foundation declares the first week of November to be Drowsy Driving Prevention Week. In an effort to reduce the number of fatigue-related crashes and to save lives, this campaign provides public education about the under-reported risks of driving while drowsy and preventative steps to improve safety on the road. 

Did you know:
  • Driving drowsy is like driving with .05% blood alcohol content?
  • 1 out of 10 drivers have fallen asleep at the wheel in this past year
  • 1 out of 8 crashes that require hospitalization is due to drowsy driving
  • 1 out of 6 deadly traffic accidents is a direct result of drowsy driving
Adults need on average between 7 and 9 hours of sleep a night, but unfortunately with all of the distractions and stresses of daily life - not everyone gets that much. To ensure you stay alert on the road, plan to drive long trips with a friend or companion, schedule regular stops, avoid alcohol or medications, and even pull over to take a short nap if you feel fatigued (15-20 min). 

Whether you are a business traveler frequently working long hours, commuting on the road to and from airports during high traffic times, or are the driver selected to chauffeur your friends to and from a concert during late night hours after an exhausting week - consider giving us a call. At Dynasty Limousine, we want to make sure you arrive to and from your destination safely. We'll handle your transportation to ensure none of your fatigue will compromise your safety on the road. 

Call us today (631) 587-8500! For more information please visit our website www.dynastylimoli.com.
