Are You Anxious Every Time Your Teenager Gets Behind The Wheel?

As your teen grows up and takes on more responsibility, like driving a motor vehicle, your anxiety levels can skyrocket and for good reason. Speeding is one of the most prevalent factors contributing to traffic crashes.  In 2008, speeding was a contributing factor in 31 percent of all fatal crashes, and 11,674 lives were lost in speeding-related crashes.  Some people may say, installing a GPS tracking device in your teens car shows a lack of trust in your teen, but you KNOW that your teen would never speed if you were in the car with them.  A GPS tracker from National Fleet Tracking is the way you can “be with” your teen every mile they drive.

A GPS Tracking System Can Build Trust

A GPS tracking system is a powerful deterrent for any negative behavior. We also feel that telling your teenager that a GPS Tracking system is in their vehicle, is done  out of love and not a lack of trust. You want your teenager to live to their 21st Birthday...You also want the trust between your teen and yourself to grow, having a GPS tracking system, will empower you and your teen to build a stronger foundation of trust.


Can’t I just track their cell phone, isn’t that the same thing?


Actually, it is not. A hardwired GPS tracking system, like the NFT-4550 is permanently installed, and cannot be easily removed or turned off, like a cell phone. Also our devices can be used to locate a vehicle that has been lost or stolen. More importantly, our GPS tracking system is powered by the car's battery, so it works even when your teen forgets to charge their phone.

TEEN GPS TRACKING IN THE NEWS.

"One increasing use of GPS tracking is to monitor the driving habits of teenagers; some devices even send a text message when the car goes over a certain speed. Jimmie Mesis, a private investigator in New Jersey who, with his wife, Rosemarie, publishes PI Magazine, recalled a couple whose 17-year-old daughter had a drug problem and would disappear for hours at a time. Worried that she might overdose, they placed a tracker on her car. When they saw that she was visiting the same house repeatedly, they informed the police, who raided the drug den."
