Thinking Safety = Driving Safely
Just thinking about safety when you head out on the road can make you a safer driver.
Parents are the biggest influence on teens’ driving habits.
Teens are less likely to be in a crash if their parents set rules and monitor their activities.
TEEN TRACK's goal is to keep new drivers and those around them safe on the road by facilitating a dialogue between parents and teens about being safe and responsible drivers while allowing parents to monitor their teens’ Motor Vehicle Records (MVRs). Parents are notified immediately via email of any reportable incidents such as motor vehicle accidents, pending suspensions, revocations and expirations, and convictions (such as speeding, red light violations, reckless driving, no seatbelt, using a cell phone, DWI, failure to answer a summons, etc.).
In addition to taking a proactive role in helping teens’ develop safe driving skills, TEEN TRACK will donate a portion of proceeds to the teen’s school for fundraising purposes.
