Got a New Driver? Yeah, There’s an App for That

Figuring out how to keep teen drivers out of car accidents is a challenge for any parent. You want them to drive and gain experience, but you worry that they will become distracted by modern conveniences, especially cellphones. Now there is an app that may help, rather than hinder your teen driver.

The University of North Carolina has been working on these issues for many years at UNC’s Highway Safety Research Center in Chapel Hill. A senior researcher noted that many young drivers go out on their own with little or no real driving experience and can get into trouble rather quickly. He said there were some, “teens who were getting a license who had never driven at night, never driven in bad weather or on the interstate.”

UNC developed an app that allows parents and their teens to work to meet goals of obtaining different kinds of driving experience before they are alone. The app enables them to track their progress.

Other products can also help young drivers, but disabling texting or cellphone use when the vehicle is moving. Driving is a dangerous activity and inexperienced drivers need all the help they can get.

Wonderful law firm that cares

I was injured in a terrible fall which left my foot, arm back and knee badly bruised. The Dozier Law Firm was awesome. Attorney Dustin Hamilton reviewed and accepted my case and within a few months he was able to settle my case for more than I ever imagine. The Dozier Law Firm is A+ in my book.
