When a teen gets his or her license most parents get additional anxiety. With the number one killer of teens being car-related driving accidents, and 16-25 year old drivers being the number one age group ticketed by police for traffic violations, parents have good cause to feel anxious. Although the thought of a teen driver navigating the roadways alone can be worrisome for most parents, many have turned to technology to ease the stress.
GPS tracking systems allow parents to be proactive in modifying and shaping the driving behaviors of their teen, and actually help build trust between parent and teen. With a GPS vehicle tracking solution validating a teen is exhibiting responsible and cautious driving behaviors, many parents allow the teen to have MORE freedoms. Having the ability to always know where your teen is and has been provides a parent with assurance, security and relief.

GPS tracking systems can act as effective preventative mechanisms for many forms of negative driving behavior. Another positive impact that comes from using a GPS vehicle tracking solution is the additional freedoms and lowered insurance rates many teen drivers receive. When a teen driver receives additional freedom and parents receive the peace of knowing their teen is safe everybody wins.
When a teen knows that a GPS tracker is monitoring their every move they begin to drive more safely and build a foundation of safe driving habits that will last a lifetime!
Any parent with a teenage son or daughter has definitely seen the love affair that their teen has with their mobile communication device. Teens can be seen texting away at the dinner table, at church, at school or even while operating a motor vehicle. However, what many parents do not know is that occasionally the text messages can be provocative and sexual in nature. The practice of sending sexually explicit text messages is now defined as "sexting", and the problem has become an epidemic among an age group where engaging in risk-taking behaviors is common. In an effort to ensure their teen is being safe, many parents concerned about teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases and other serious things that can result in teenage sexual activity are now investing in GPS tracking system technologies to observe the possibly dangerous behaviors that their teen may be involved with.
GPS car trackers such as the GPS Tracking Key have been used by attentive parents for approximately 10 years. Although the application of monitoring teen driving first stemmed from parents looking to observe potentially dangerous driving habits when a teen sits behind the wheel, the practice has now became more popular with parents who believe that their teen may potentially be involved in a sexual relationship(s). The GPS car tracking systems are helpful to parents by providing location-based data such as address' the teen arrived/departed, and speeds the teen was driving.
