Tracking Device Helps to Improve Teen Driving

DriveCam is a device that monitors the driving habits of the person operating the vehicle, according to a recent article from Knox News. The device records video whenever the driver makes a mistake. According to a Wisconsin teen, the device made her into the better more cautious driving she is today. She said it was nice because it told her what she was doing wrong so she could correct her mistakes. The device is only intrusive when it’s recording so she said she felt less violated when she was making fewer mistakes. Research has shown that electronic monitoring devices can reduce risky driving behavior by teenagers, and a growing number of insurance companies and auto manufacturers are offering these new products. However, the growth is slow due to many parents feeling they infringed upon the trust they had with their teen. DriveCam has recorded 65-70% reductions among participants in distractions, tailgating, poor scanning, intentionally unsafe driving and speeding.
