How to Spy On Your Teenage Driver
 

 

 

Of course your teenager doesn't text with you in the passenger seat, of course she doesn't do a big smoky burnout while you stand in the driveway, but have you ever wondered what happens when she turns the corner? There are all kinds of ways to see how drivers perform once your backs are turned. 

Street Eyes: A private eye sounds pricey but there is a company called Street Eyes that has rates as low as $30 per 20 min. session. Street eyes will have its operators follow at a discreet distance, film your teenagers car, capture speed and performance, and report back to you.

GPS Options: There is a product called Sky Link Protect that allows parents to set up geo-fences and speed alerts. It can function as a vehicle locator if your car is stolen as well. It allows parents to unlock the door and track speed, acceleration, and visually map where child is at all times.

Safeco insurance has a program called teen assurance. The GPS unit must be a professionally installed and allows parents to instantly locate the car, set speed reminders, set up safe driving zones called geo-fences, and notify parents via e-mail or telephone when the car goes over 61 mi./h. The system cost $200 with a $19 monthly fee.

American Family Insurance has the only zero cost program I could find. They will install in your child's car an interior video system. They will monitor the system for you and report back to you once a month how your child could improve their driving. Of course you have to buy American family insurance than to put it in your car, but it is the only zero cost option I could find out there.
