/EINPresswire.com/ Dallas, TX â€“ January 28, 2013 â€“ â€śI was super excited for my son, but pretty worried at the same time,â€ť said Daddy John as he described how it felt to watch his 16-year-old drive away in the family car all by himself for the very first time. â€śI trusted him, but I also knew he's human like
the rest of us. You just hate the thought of getting â€śone of those callsâ€ť some day.â€ť
Many people are surprised to learn that one of the top causes of teen death in America is speeding â€“ a factor very much within the teen's control. It only takes reading yesterday's newspaper to know that sometimes a teen speeds out of foolishness and immaturity. Other times it is simply a matter of carelessness and distraction. But regardless of the underlying reason, speed's tragic results can be the same.
A study performed by Liberty Mutual suggests that parents profoundly impact the safety of their teens by setting driving rules and consequences for each violation. Paul Condrin of Liberty Mutual says, "Itâ€™s quite encouraging to see that parental involvement can significantly improve teen driving statisticsâ€¦ And through this study, the type of parental involvement that works is clear â€“ parents need to set clear expectations with their teens about what safe driving is, and establish and enforce those consequences should those laws be broken or expectations not be met."
LifeGuard GPS provides an ideal â€śon the jobâ€ť training and monitoring solution for parents who want to do more than just â€śhope for the bestâ€ť after a their teen gets a driver's license. LifeGuard is a GPS unit that easily installs in the teen's car to monitor location, speed, and even periodic maintenance needs like gasoline, oil, etc. Whenever a parent-defined location or speed â€śboundaryâ€ť is crossed, LifeGuard sends immediate notification to the parent for follow-up and discussion with the son or daughter. Teens soon learn that Mom or Dad is the invisible passenger on every ride.
LifeGuard GPS gives parents invaluable information to help them reward their teen's good driving habits and correct their risky inattentiveness or poor decisions. Byron Stinson, founder of LifeGuard GPS, says, â€śI highly doubt my teen would consider doing anything reckless if they knew I was in the backseat watching every move they made.â€ť
Parents are encouraged to sit down with their teen and communicate a system of incentives for responsible driving behavior as well as some logical consequences for careless irresponsibility â€“ all in the spirit of, â€śI love you too much to do otherwise! I cannot bear the thought of losing you!â€ť
