Default Got Kids Who Text and Drive?

I ran across this neat little device while working with a government client in Louisiana last week.

Parents can use it to restrict the activities of their kids accessing their electronic devices while the vehicle is in motion.

A very good safety device that isn't very expensive. You may even be able to get a discount on your personal auto insurance policy if such measure are in use.

I have no interests in the company or device -- I just think it is a great tool for parents from a risk management standpoint.

Ever since moving from a car to a vehicle that sits up higher I am AMAZED at how many people text and drive....of all ages. They do have one thing in common though, they are almost always women.

I think the percentage of women is certainly more than "men" but I've seen many "men" texting while I was out and about. I almost got run off the road in Utah this winter on the interstate by some punk kid texting. He decided he needed to exit while he was in the fast lane....... I was very lucky I was looking at him as the exit approached.

I text and drive all the time. If you don't like it, get off the sidewalk.

That's a neat system. I was surprised by how cheap it is.

$25 Fine first offense, $50 2nd, and $75 for the 3rd. Not enough of a deterrent with fines that small.
