I can’t believe my daughter is turning 15 this month. From her first words to middle school graduation, her growth literally and figuratively has been amazing. I’m looking forward to all that life brings her, but I have to say I’m dreading next year when she is sure to ask for something that worries almost any parent: a learner’s permit.
Teen driving safety is a serious matter. According to the CDC, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens. In fact, per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are nearly three times more likely than drivers aged 20 and older to be in a fatal crash.
That’s why when the Honeywell Total Connect Vehicle Tracker was released, I knew I had to have it before I hand over my car keys. With the Vehicle Tracker installed, parents get notified by text or email about many things, including if the car goes over the speed limit. Since speeding is a primary culprit in a third of fatal crashes involving teen drivers, this information can go a long way in discussing the need for safe driving practices.
In addition to the Vehicle Tracker, there are two Asset Trackers that are ideal for helping you pursue opportunities in the commercial market. Tracking everything from construction equipment to outdoor inventory, these devices can alert business owners with real-time GPS location info as well as detailed reports on stops and starts. All three of the devices offer geofencing, which lets the user create a virtual area so that they can be notified when the device enters or exits that location.

And if you have teenagers at home, here are some great safety tips to review with your child before he or she gets in the driver’s seat.
