Driving Safety Apps for Teen Drivers

How Safe is Your Teen Driver?

If you are the parent of a teen, you know how nerve wracking it is when they first get behind the wheel. Unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of death for teenagers in the United States, which makes your worries very well founded. Luckily, with the new tech wave of smart phone apps, driving safety apps have been developed to help parents make sure their teens are safe on the road. Our Denver car repair experts are here to present you with some of the top driving apps for teens.

  • Text Arrest: Texting is the number one cause of driving distractions and this app tackles it head on by locking the phone’s screen so that no emails or texts can be sent or received.
  • Safe Driver: For the newly licensed teen, Safe Driver is designed to monitor speed of the vehicle and location, sending parents a message when a certain speed is exceeded. If you are worried your teen is driving too fast, this could be a good way to make sure.
  • Drive Safe.Ly Pro: This app allows teens to stay connected in a safer way – texts and email are read aloud and the app will respond without even a press of a button.
  • Zoom Safer: Another function limiter, Zoom Safer also gives parents the ability to set a contact list via an online account. Aside from that, teens will not be able to use email, text, and calling while on the road.
  • Steer Clear Mobile: Designed to get your teen safe driving discounts through State Farm, this app teaches safe driving practices and lets teens keep track of driving mileage and driving time, allowing them to plot their progress.

Safety apps are a great way to make sure your safety lessons are getting through, but they are not a substitute for a proper lesson on the importance of vehicle safety. Be sure that your teen is aware of all of the risks and responsibility before getting behind the wheel – it could mean their life.
