If you're of the age where you have a teenager, then you were once a teen yourself. You're smiling a little while reminiscing on the good old times, aren't you? Now stop and remember all of the things you did that shocked your parents. Add driving to the mix. And now a cell phone. Are your eyes widening in horror? Don't worry! We've got some tips to keep your teen safe behind the wheel this summer:

 

1. If you do decide to let your out of the house this summer, be sure to download the Sprint Safe & Found app. This app lets you locate family members in real time. You can also restrict app usage at certain times, as well as send out location alerts in an emergency situation. 

 

2. With the Safe & Found app you can create a safety zone and be alerted whenever a family member leaves a designated area. It's a great feature to have. Especially when your teen tells you it's study time at the library and whoops, there's an alert that the library must have changed addresses. Check out everything you can do with this app here

 

3. Add Sprint Drive to your family's cars to keep everyone safe and protected. You can follow the location of the car in real time and even set curfew hours. Sleep soundly that you know where your teen is at all times just in case anything should happen. 

 

4.  With your family's busy schedule, use Sprint Drive to monitor your car's health and prevent problems before they become a real issues. We even have a Hotline Mechanic that can offer repair advice, cost estimation and shop locations. Send your teen out onto the open road feeling confident they're safe and well looked after with our 24/7 roadside assistance. 

 

5. Educate your teen about driving safety highlighting the serious risks involved with texting and driving. Start by setting an example and sticking to it. Enable "Do Not Disturb" on your phone while driving if you can't resist the temptation to use your phone. No text message or gif is worth you or your family's life.
