RoadPoints Teenage Driver Monitor – Challenge your Teen Driver to Keep Safe

It can be scary out there on the roads these days. People seem to be driving more erratically, faster and definitely with more distractions. I am most stressed on the highway but even side-streets feel a little less safe on compared to even five or ten years ago. My kids are not yet able to drive but I the nerves around it have already crept in for those days ahead. I want my kids to have their full attention on the roads as that is what it takes these days. Especially for a teenager new to being behind the wheel, they need to be mindful of all of the elements around them and to drive responsibly. When I myself was a teenager I had so much on my mind and safety wasn’t as high a priority as it is to me today. School, work and regular teenage life was always on my mind, plus there was of course peer pressure at that age too. All of this would sometimes result in me taking my mind off the road and speeding. Well I was fortunate not to be involved in any accidents at that time, but it’s a serious problem that sadly happens far-too often. In-fact over 5,000 teens ages 16 to 20 years old die due to fatal injuries caused by car accidents each year.

Well there’s something that you can now do as a parent to help your kids driver more safely, even when you’re not in the car with them. It does not entail taking the car away from them, or chaperoning 100% of their activities for all of those years. This is a far-less intrusive solution that they might actually like as much as you. It’s RoadPoints, a tool that tracks their driving and rewards them for the right type of driving. You’ll both be able to monitor how they are driving, and if they are doing a great job you can reward them. If they speed, swerve in their lanes or have other driving behavior that isn’t safe it affects their DriveScore and can reduce their reward. Brilliant! That’s such a win-win. I know that had that been around when I was a teen I would have been all over it, trying to max out my score and getting some extra dough just for driving safe. It’s almost like a game, too. I’m sure a lot of teens try to beat their score from the prior month or someone they know. That adds some fun to it all and a whole game element that teens love more than ever.

The whole user experience of RoadPoints is so easy, too. Just have a quick conversation about it with them (they’ll likely be all over it!), then download the app to their phone. Using GPS it will then start tracking many different metrics that you can monitor. It can send them a report card and send me a full report as frequent as I’d like. RoadPoints prides itself on privacy, too. I love how their website says exactly how the company uses your data and how it doesn’t use it for anything else.

In short RoadPoints has a great mission that I fully back and they are providing a solution that is affective and easy to use. It is also a rare product that both kids and parents will actually agree on and find mutually beneficial. J Bravo!

    Looks like a great app to have when there are teenage drivers in the house. Thanks for sharing. My kids are all young adults and are responsible drivers. I will let my sister know about this. Her 19 year old daughter just started driving.

    Cool. I would have personally had a hard time with this as a teenager because the last thing I wanted was more monitoring by my parents. However, I can see that if the rewards for scoring were things that I wanted (cash, earning the right to do something etc.) then I would have definitely given it a shot! I will share this with the families I work with. Thanks!

    I know a few adults who could probably use a little monitoring of their driving habits too.

    This is great, and I could definitely think of a few people who arent teens that need this as well!

    What an interesting and helpful app! I’m sure adults could use this app as well, but I could see me using this for my kids when they reach driving age.

    This sounds like a very good app to have. I am all for anything that helps teens to become safer drivers. Having a teen driver can be very nerve wrecking, I am sure.

    Teen driving and safety hits very close to home for my family. I am not looking forward to the day my kids get their license I am actually paranoid. This app does look like it will alleviate some of my stress, thank you for sharing.
