MMGuardian and the Lone Star State

Addressing the Texting and Driving Epidemic

By Paul Grossinger

Texas’ legislature is now considering a ban on texting and driving. It’s time the Lone Star state, where more individuals drive more hours than any other in the nation, confront the growing epidemic.

The Lone Star state’s response comes at a time when unchecked texting and driving is on the rise. Research from AT&T indicates 49% of adult drivers text while driving and 33% of teens do the same. Indeed, AOL reported last month that distracted driving is the No. 1 killer of teens in America.

When the Lone Star state does take action, MMGuardian can help.

Once texting while driving becomes illegal, parents will want to make sure their teens do not violate the law and put their safety at serious risk. MMGuardian Parental Control’s Safe Driving feature enables parents to prevent their teens from sending any texts from behind the wheel. When the feature is enabled, MMGuardian detects if the child’s phone is in a moving car and, if they are, shuts off the device’s texting capability. Parents can also set up override times if they know their teen will be in a car that they are not actually driving and manually override the feature from their own phone if their teen sends them an alert.

The law is changing. How will you protect your teens?
