Distracted Driving App: How It Works | How to Prevent Teens Texting on the Road
Install and Protect, It’s as Simple as That
We Mean it!
RoadReady Family prevents distracted driving through a combination of technologies. First, there is a device installed on the vehicle. Then, an app is downloaded to the driver’s smartphone, and the smartphone number is added to the account. The device interacts with the phone app to restrict phone usage that can lead to distractions.
Parents or business owners can create a RoadReady Family Account, add the mobile phone numbers for any drivers to your Account, and a link will be quickly sent to the device to download the RoadReady Family app.
Simple To Install
Once the RoadReady Family app is installed on the mobile device, you can install the RoadReady Family device on the vehicle in just a few minutes. There are no tools required, since the device, called a “dongle”, installs into the on-board diagnostic port of the vehicle.
Manage All Your Devices From One Account
Once the dongle is installed, it will immediately start working to protect family, employees, or any other driver who operates your vehicle and needs protection. You can easily change account settings through the RoadReady Family Online Dashboard. You can check account settings, define your distracted driving policy, monitor your drivers performance, obtain reports, and so forth.
Easy To Customize
You have the flexibility with your on-line account to set what your drivers can and cannot do while driving. For example, you might let them access music, the phone to receive calls from specific numbers, or a navigation app so they don’t get lost. However, you don’t want them accessing social media, text messaging, or other features that would create excessive distractions. This is quite easy to do in your RoadReady Family on-line account.
Painless To Manage
Once you have set up your distracted driving criteria, you can obtain reports for driver performance. But there is more, as you can also see other driver behaviors such as excessive braking or acceleration, speeding, and usage of the approved device. Safety will improve and incidents will diminish as your drivers learn the constraints of your distracted driving policy.
