Insurance Insights: Keeping Your Kids On Track
Because car crashes are the leading cause of teenage deaths, it is understandable that many parents would like to get a better read on their child(ren)’s driving habits. If so, concerned parents are likely to be very appreciative of new technology that enables them to monitor their teen’s speed, location, acceleration, and braking. The GPS-enabled devices plug into the vehicle’s diagnostic post, which is usually located beneath the dashboard on the left-hand side. The devices, which work on any automobile built after 1996, send a vehicle’s location to a website map and an e-mail or text alert if the car exceeds allowable speed limits. The device can signal when it is disconnected or if the vehicle goes outside pre-determined boundaries.
