Unfortunately more U.S. teens die from car accidents than any other cause; however, new technology may give Massachusetts parents a reason to breathe easier when their teenager gets behind the wheel. While dashboard cameras aren’t new to the market, Drivecam for Families adds a technology that can provide peace of mind to parents everywhere.
The Drivecam is a video feedback program that activates when a driver does something risky. The program determines if the driver’s actions increase the likelihood of a motor vehicle accident and then notifies the drivers parents via the company’s data center. Parents can then review what their teen is doing.
Keeping the lines of communication open with one’s teenager is important, and if parents plan to utilize Drivecam it is encouraged that they inform their teen about the intended use of Drivecam. While some teens may object, parents can explain that the new technology is designed to help them be safer drivers and not meant to convey parental distrust.
If a Massachusetts resident has been harmed by the actions of a reckless driver, they may be entitled to compensation. David M. Gabriel & Associates can evaluate the conduct of a negligent driver and determine the best course of action to recover damages.
