How many drivers have you witnessed texting, calling or holding their phone while driving? How would you feel if you or your family members were in the vehicle of a distracted driver?
There has been an accelerating number of accidents caused by teens using their mobile phone while driving. Have you heard the frequent news articles involving teens in fatal crashes? A recent story from TWC News reports that a Union County teenager aged 17 was killed in a wreck, likely due to texting while driving.
Do you have a teenage child and want to stop them from texting or calling while driving? Are you worried that they might hurt or injure themselves or others? Parents are asking these questions all the time, and do not believe that their child is distracted while driving until it happens to them.
What if this happens to you or your child?
With TeenSafer, drivers will only see a "lock" screen that prevents them from using the phone until the vehicle comes to a stop. In case of emergency, drivers will have access to one Emergency contact (such as 911) and two customized contacts such as mom and dad. If the phone needs to be unblocked at any time, a parent or app "Administrator" can remotely unblock it indefinitely or for a set period of time through the Web portal online.
If you are also worried about your teen street racing or speeding, TeenSafer can also monitor their approximate speed and current location using GPS technology. Parents or app "Administrators" can set a speed limit to monitor how fast their teen is driving. When the set speed limit is exceeded, a text message will be sent to the parent notifying them of their teen driver's current speed and location. Speed and location reports can also be viewed on their account on the Web Portal.
