A new survey by Smith Micro Software shows American parents view smartphones as both friend and foe when it comes to the safety of their teen drivers. While 50% of parents surveyed cited either smartphone use, talking on the phone, or texting as the most dangerous distractions for teen drivers, nearly seven in 10 parents (69%) believe that a mobile app measuring driver behavior would help teens learn safer driving habits.

Join this webinar to explore the survey results and gain insight on the following topics:

  • Parental concerns regarding the safety of their teen drivers.
  • Smartphones’ impact on teen drivers’ safety and risk profiles.
  • How existing tech helps parents teach safe driving habits to their teens.
  • Parental willingness to employ driver safety monitoring technology/mobile apps
  • Opportunities for consumer-facing brands to position themselves as safety advocates among families with young drivers.
