Inactivate Your Teen's Cell Phone While They Drive

May 28, 2010

If you have a teenager who drives - or know someone who does - you'll want to check out this website.
My daughter is still about 9 years away from driving (or 20, if I get my way) and I'm already starting to worry about her talking on the phone or texting while behind the wheel.
In fact, a few months ago, I stopped talking on the phone while I drive.  One of the main reasons, (besides the fact that I might kill someone) is that I didn't want to set a bad example for my kids.  I didn't want them to think they could talk on the phone while they drove because "Mom always did."
Having said that, there is a great technology that I just discovered.  It's called "Key2SafeDriving."  How it works is that the moment your teen turns the key in the ignition, their cell phone will not longer take/receive calls or allow for texting.  If they turn off the car, the phone works again. (There is a special feature where they can still dial 911.)

Many companies are also using this technology in their company cars. 

I don't know about you, but this feature WILL be installed in my car by the time my kids start to drive!

Make sure to forward this post onto any of your friends or family members who have kids who drive!

PS  If you, yourself, have no will power, you might want to consider this technology for yourself.  You'll sleep much better knowing you aren't at risk of hurting or killing someone because you were distracted by your cell phone!
