In the previous post, I highlighted two potentially lifesaving smartphone apps designed to keep teen drivers safe on the road. This is such a meaningful topic and the manufacturers of these applications are doing a great deal to keep the youngest generation of highway-goers alive, so I thought it was worth calling attention to two more products that are well worth considering.
With nearly every teen armed with a cell phone today, parents can take some comfort in knowing that there is a constant line of communication. In addition, with this app it is possible to keep very close tabs on the habits of teens, so safety can remain the primary concern and Tampa auto accidents can be better avoided.
There are a couple of different things that the MamaBearApp can do for parents. First, it can allow for tracking of the teen. Skipping school? Visiting a boyfriend or girlfriend without permission? This app can tell parents exactly where the child has gone and when. Alerts can be sent directly to parents when the child is speeding or using a cell phone while driving. It can even show parents exactly what kids are doing on social media platforms.
It’s not an app, but it is definitely worth investigating. This easy-to-install tool does not rely on GPS, but it does do what many parents wish they could — disable the smartphone while the car is in motion. Don’t be alarmed. Emergency calls can still be made, but texting, social media updates, friendly phone conversations, and email will have to wait because The Key will not allow it while the vehicle is moving.
Are you unsure how you would feel about installing such a device in your car? Take a look at the video below to learn more about how it operates and what it can do to protect the most important part of your world — your child.
