GPS Tracking Systems A Solution To Teen Driving
Speeding Believed To Be The Cause Of Car Accident
Family, friends and neighbors were all stunned when they heard that two local teens were involved in a serious car accident in a York County, South Carolina suburb that resulted in the death of one teen. The police investigating the crash believe that speeding was the main cause of the accident, and because both teens were not wearing their seat belts the injuries they sustained were probably much more severe.
Speeding is a growing problem among young teen drivers, and although the root of the problem may come from peer-pressure, inexperienced driving, a sense of immortality or a combination of all of those factors their is no questioning that speeding can equal death. This real problem has left many parents asking what can be done to reduce or eliminate teen speeding. The answer to the problem of teen speeding may come in the form of a sophisticated piece of technology known as a GPS tracking system.
Real Time GPS Trackers Notify Parents When A Teen Speeds
GPS tracking devices are the newest ally of parents with teen drivers. The same vehicle tracking systems that are used by government agencies such as the ATF, FBI and U.S. Border Patrol are now available to parents to combat speeding teens. Real time GPS tracking technology gives parents the ability to monitor teen driving to ensure responsible driving habits are being built and sustained. No parent wants their child to be a statistic, yet every year the main cause of premature death among teens is car accidents.
So why has nothing changed?
Vehicle tracking systems 5 years ago were still fairly expensive to the average consumer, however, as the technology became more advanced and efficient the price for GPS tracking devices declined. Now, a quality GPS data logger can be purchased for $169.00 with no monthly service obligations. By providing a parent with every location a teen has traveled and the speeds they were traveling, GPS tracking systems allow parents to see firsthand what their teenage son or daughter is doing when they are behind the wheel unsupervised.
A GPS tracking system will tell any parent the cold hard truth about what teen is really doing when they are driving by themselves or with friends, information that might help a parent save their teen’s life. Speeding is a serious problem that can have fatal consequences, but the behavior of speeding can be shaped and changed with GPS tracking technology.
