Time to Drive is a research-based app for parents of teen drivers. It can be used to help you make sure your teen gets lots of driving practice - and the right kind of practice - so he or she can become a safer driver.
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers in the United States. One of the reasons for this is that teens often don t get enough driving practice, especially in situations such as darkness, bad weather, heavy traffic, interstates, and curvy rural roads.
A critically important piece of the driver s licensing process is the learner stage. During this period new drivers are required to spend 6-12 months and a certain number of hours practicing under the supervision of an adult.
To assist in this process, researchers at the UNC Highway Safety Research Center developed the Time to Drive iPhone app, in collaboration with Sky Highways, Inc., to support parents and supervisors of teen drivers during the practice period.
Time to Drive will:
Record amount of driving and conditions (with a printable log to provide to the DMV)
Keep track of hard stops
Provide tips for parents
Encourage the parent-teen team to meet driving goals
Show a map of past trips
Note: this app uses your iPhone's GPS to record a trip. Once a trip is in progress you may switch between apps but remember to switch back to this app to record the trip details at the end. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
