Bumper stickers allow parents to keep tabs on teen drivers

Posted by lapearce on March 17, 2009

“How’s My Driving” bumper stickers are now available for teen drivers. “The program lets people in the community monitor how teens are driving. Parents register online and get a ID number that is on a bumper sticker. Then people in the community can go to the Web site: www.safeteendriveronline.com Type in the ID number and leave a message for parents about their teen’s driving.”

The mother who started the program, Valerie Peterson, feels the program will help new drivers because it will make them aware that they are being watched and adjust their behavior.

“I think it will heighten his awareness of the fact that the community is watching him and helping to keep him safe on the road.”

I don’t want to downplay the attempts parents are making to ensure the safety of their children, however, I feel that if we were to improve driver’s training we wouldn’t need monitoring systems, GPS, text messages when teens go above a certain speed, and all the other band-aid fixes we’re giving the driver’s education system instead of just fixing it.
