MOTOsafety Supports "Walk Like MADD" 5K Walk Events in Tucson & Phoenix
Inexperience and speed are two of the most common factors in collisions involving teen drivers.
In addition to eliminating drunk driving, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) aims to eradicate these dangerous behaviors by raising awareness and encouraging young drivers to drive smart and drive safe.
The annual Walk Like MADD fundraiser supports MADD’s nationwide initiatives. As Walk Like MADD events are held across the country, thousands of people in over 60 cities will participate in a 5K walk to raise funds, prevent impaired driving, and support the victims of impaired driving.
MOTOsafety is proud to share MADD’s goal to eliminate dangerous driving. By providing a comprehensive and easy-to-use program that coaches teens to be safer drivers, our GPS devices help prevent accidents before they happen and give parents of new drivers peace of mind as their teens learn to drive.
MOTOsafety will be attending MADD’s Walk Like MADD event in Tucson on September 17, 2016, as well as the Walk Like MADD 5K in Phoenix on October 22. At each event, we’ll be offering 50% off a GPS tracking device, as well as a free month of service. Two GPS tracking devices will also be offered as prizes in MADD’s Walk Like MADD raffle.
“We all stress about our teens learning to drive,” stated Jessica Stoddard, Director of Consumer Products for MOTOsafety. “Here at MOTOsafety we are dedicated to preventing future accidents by developing the only comprehensive program available that empowers you to coach your teen driver from any location through your smartphone.”
MOTOsafety GPS devices come equipped with a number of features that can help parents keep their teens safe behind the wheel, such as:
- Driver safety report cards: Receive a daily safety grade for each vehicle in your household, see a summary of unsafe driving activities, and track safety trends over time with daily report cards sent straight to your email inbox.
- Real-time location tracking: Play back the history of your teen’s daily driving routes, including detailed information about each stop, using the familiar Google maps interface.
- Alerts: Receive email, text message, or mobile app alerts in real-time whenever unsafe behaviors occur, including speeding, harsh braking, unauthorized vehicle use and more.
- Geofences: Create virtual boundaries around important locations, such as school, work, or a friend’s house, and receive text message or email notifications whenever your teen enters or exits these areas.
When parents understand how their teen drivers behave behind the wheel, they can help prevent accidents before they happen by helping to eliminate dangerous driving behaviors and encouraging safe driving habits.
