It’s a mobile app that allows parents to motivate their teens to drive responsibly. It prevents texting & driving; it monitors speeding and short stops & starts, and it maintains an up-to-date report card on the driving behavior.
Driver report card
The Driver's Report Card grades speed & speeding, braking & acceleration, connectivity and distracted driving. Parents can view it any time on their phone or computer.
You can set it up to receive real-time alerts to your phone for different kinds of behavior. Is he texting & driving? Is she speeding 20MPH over the limit? Your driver will also receive these alerts.
If your driver speeds or comes to a screeching halt somewhere, you'll know when and where. If he's texting, a purple pin will mark it on the map.
The essence of RoadPoints: motivating the child to drive well with rewards. You set up the allowance, and he earns a portion of it based on his grades.
RoadPoints converts driving into a game that is won by driving responsibly. You set the reward, and your child earns it by driving well.
Texting, Mapping, Facebooking, Talking, etc., has become a huge cause of accidents, especially among teens who are easily distracted by nature. Cars are safer than ever, but phones are more dangerous than ever. Use this app to block your teen from using his phone while driving.
Sits in the car and communicates with the driver’s phone to disable it while driving. If the driver attempts to unlock his phone while driving, the app will generate alerts every second asking him or her to close the phone.
Even if the RoadPoints is closed on your teen’s phone, the beacon will activate it silently in the background as soon as he or she get in the car. The combination of app + beacon is the most effective way to monitor teen driving and encourage proper driving habits.
As parents, we all know it’s easier to motivate our children with positive reinforcement, and RoadPoints is set up to allow you to encourage safe driving. You set up a driving-based allowance, and based on their grades, they earn a percentage of it. They need gas money, right? Why not let them drive for it?
What that means is that you as a parent can put money into the system and when they earn enough good driving points they can redeem some of the $ in that account and get paid for their good driving skills….all teens would love that incentive!! I’ve always been an advocate for positive rewards and this one seems like a great one for teens and their parents.
This app is great. My kid’s motivated to drive the speed limit and go easy on the brakes, and I have instant access to all his drive data. If he speeds, I know where and when. If he kills the app, I get an email. Every week I get a report card on his driving, and every month (if he drives well), he gets a little cash. The best part is that I don’t have to make him do anything. The app does it all.
The kids seem to be more conscientious now that there’s money at stake. It’s not a lot, but they get competitive. I love this app. Thank you!
