When Keenan, my now college student, first started driving I said over and over to my husband, “There needs to be a way to shut his phone off while he drives.” Unfortunately there wasn’t.
What I did find was an app that would tell me what he was doing while he was driving. Over and over I received reports that while traveling he was using his phone to text. We threatened, made good on our threats, took the keys and pleaded. We would then give the keys back after the grounding period and for a while I would receive no reports.
Then, a little time would pass, and the reports would start coming in again. As an adult I find it difficult to not touch my phone while driving. For my son, this proved, nearly impossible.
Again I said to my husband, “If only there was a way to shut the phone off while he is driving.” We needed to remove the temptation by making it completely unavailable. Fortunately he is now at college without a car.
This year Noah started driving and I struggled with the same fears. Then I found out about this amazing OBD device. It does exactly what I had been hoping for. It shuts the phone down while the car is in motion.
Here is a video by Jessica Gottlieb explaining how it works.
If you have a teen who is driving you MUST install this in their car. It is simple.
It works. It shuts their phone down. And it just might save their life.
