How can technology help teens drive better?

A first driver's license is a huge deal for any teen. It is also a huge stressor for any parent. USA Today reports that teen drivers have three times of a likelihood of getting into a deadly accident than other drivers. That is a scary fact for any parent. If you are concerned, then you can rest assured that technology is here to save the day.

Newer vehicles often come equipped with driving monitoring devices and technology that can help you stay on top of how your teen is driving and even monitor where he or she is in real time. However, most teens will not be driving a brand-new vehicle. Many are driving older models that do not have this technology integrated into them.

Distracted driving associated with cell phone use is a large part of teen accidents, so phone makers have gotten into the safety technology. Many phones will go into a driving mode once connected to a vehicle's Bluetooth. This mode works different on each phone, but it can stop notifications, prevent the phone from ringing and even send automated responses to text messages to let senders know the person is driving.

There are also apps on the market that allow you to track your teen's driving habits. They can report on acceleration, braking and even let you know where your child is at any given time. You can monitor speed with most apps, too. These apps can give you a peace of mind, allowing you to check in on your child whenever he or she is driving.
