San Ramon, CA, October 08, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The changing autumn season brings new opportunities for teens to explore their world along with challenges for their parents. As many teens will be driving themselves and one or more passengers to a Homecoming dance, parents’ anxiety about unchaperoned drivers out late at night also rises.
Parents are right to be concerned. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 16-19 year old drivers are three times more likely than drivers over 20 to be involved in a serious accident with 6 teens dying each day due to motor vehicle injuries. With 55% of these accidents were due to over speeding and rash driving.
For parents with homecoming bound teens, Family1st.io recommends that parents:
-Check that their teen’s cell phone is fully charged, plus place an extra charger in their car
-Add a Family1st.io Plug-In device with on board diagnostics to the car to show location, arrival, departure, vehicle performance and driving behavior
-Provide your teen with phone numbers for roadside assistance, also provided through Family1st.io
-Set your family1st.io device to send instant alerts to their phone in the event of a vehicle Malfunction
These extra steps provides a safety net for teen dance goers, while allowing parents to monitor live driving reports and instant alerts for speeding, dangerous driving, location arrivals and departures and vehicle breakdown from any phone, tablet or computer, 24 hours a day.
