·1 in 4 teens will get into a traffic collision in their first 24 months of driving, according to National Safety Council statistics.
·Traffic fatality is the number 1 killer of teens in North America.
·Speed, inexperience and distraction are the most common factors in teen collisions
Even with driver education, the first 12‐24 months are the most critical for a teen driver. It is during this initial license period that most traffic collisions occur. To date, there is no effective means for parents to help them manage their teenager’s continuing driving experience.
The Safe Driving Monitor is a key fob LCD that displays speed, distance and sudden braking data for each trip in the vehicle. With this self installed device, parents now have a record of their child’s driving activity, and can review the data each time their teen returns home. Teens are aware of the cost and risks they face as new drivers, and will be conscious of their own driving behavior with a vehicle monitor right on the keys.
Insurance carriers, brokers or agents can make The Safe Driving Monitor available to parents of teen drivers as a means to proactively monitor their child, and avoid increased insurance premiums as a result of collisions or traffic violations. The message to parents would be promotion of safer driving habits and collision avoidance.
