All Treats and No Tricks This Halloween Season

tricksKids always think they’re older and more responsible than they really are. This Halloween season every parent wants to give their child the “responsibility” they want, with the feeling of comfort YOU deserve. Children always think they can “handle things” on their own or make their own decisions; this Halloween let them think they are being adults and going out with their friends by themselves, but you’ll have a trick up your sleeve. Before your little one leaves the house, give them a new, cool “necklace” which can put your mind at ease. The “necklace” is actually in fact a Personal Tracking Unit, or S-911, designed with a lanyard look. The unit is no bigger than those orange peanut butter crackers you always ate as a kid growing up. With a light weight design and easy the use functions, keeping up with your young one will be a breeze.

Functions include:

  • Real Time Alerts- what’s happening right then and now, which can be received through text, email and on the web dashboard.
  • Real Time Locating- pin points exact locations within feet; no more guessing about where your loved one is at.
  • Geo-Fencing- set up a perimeter, or “safe zone” that your child can travel, once they cross the boundary, alerts are sent to your device.
  • G-Shock- alerts your if/when a fall or impact as occurred and alerts your device of where and when the incident occurred.
  • 2-Way Communication- as simple as calling a phone. Call your units personal number and talk live with your loved one. Responding is as easy as pushing a button and talking.

 

The personal unit tracking is a solution for younger teens and even for grandparents. It’s small, light weight, and very easy to use. With all the functions and capabilities, they get the “responsibility” they want with the peace of mind you need.

Real Eyes Realize Real Lies

In this high tech day and age we live in, GPS and Cameras are something that most fleet owners need. In-Vehicle Cameras are the must have of today’s fast pace world , proving an accurate whereabouts of their drivers, cutting down on unnecessary fuel costs, idle time and having the advantage of “seeing what the driver sees.” Without such an advance in technology to help with everyday needs, fleet owners would fall to the mercy of the “He said She said” game which may end up costing them more money. 

Be Aware

Many companies say they proved the “top notch” product of that moment, saying their camera system can prove the most up-to-date tracking available. Most provide updates of vehicles from every 5 minutes, down to every minute; what if there was something faster, better, more accurate? What if a camera system was not only easy to use and operate but also can be installed just as easy; sounds too good to be true? The future is NOW! Up until the past few weeks, this product was only a distant dream.

Top 10 Driving Distraction Know-How’s

Distracted DrivingIn this day and age we are always in a rush; going, moving, doing, something always needs to be done. There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in a day to accomplish everything we need. We even start to turn our vehicles into office space, social hub and a food table. With so many distractions out there in the fast pace technological world we live in, it’s a surprise we get to our destination in one piece. Anything can become a distraction for us, like bugs drawn to a bug-zapper; they can range from the tan, ripped guy running down the street, to the blinking lights on a new party store. While realistically we can’t eliminate driving distractions 100%, there are a few easy things you can do to take those negative habits and turn them into positive ones.

#10: Under the Influence: And not just Alcohol.   

While we are all aware of the affects of drinking and driving, that’s not the only substance that can impair driving abilities. Many people have prescription medications or pain killers they take, which can leave them feeling drained, groggy or even sleep deprived. This clouding of judgment and mental stability is safe for not only them but drivers around them.

Solution: Ask your doctor about side effects and don’t drive until you know how your body reacts to the medication.

#9: Keeping Track of Man’s Best Friend.

Dogs LOVE car rides and feeling the wind on their face, there’s nothing like it. But many dogs don’t just sit in one seat for the car ride. They want to see everything and are constantly bouncing around from the front to the back. Sometimes you might have papers in a seat or an open drink that could potentially spill. Occupying your attention on them leaves you and others on the road vulnerable and at risk.

Solution: Dog carriers or even harness devices to help limit your pets’ mobility in the car.

#8: Playing Referee with the Kids.

Everyone thinks that their child is an angel sent from above, but what happens when your “angel” turns into a screaming monster? First reaction is to see why their crying and comfort them. Those seconds your eyes come off the road can be the difference of an accident and safety.

Solution: Try and talk your little one down. If that doesn’t work, pull over.

#7: Make- Up and Multi-tasking.

Women are no stranger to leaving the house and trying to finish putting on their eye liner or even mascara while driving. Men are also the blame, brushing and fixing their hair in the rear view mirror or even shaving! Some people find driving boring and like to enjoy a good book or newspaper article.

Solution: It can wait, or wake up earlier to accomplish needed tasks.

#6: Search and Rescue Missions.

Everyone has had those times when things slip out of your hand, or take a corner too tightly and things slide off seats, dashboards and center counsels. CD’s, phones, papers, food etc have found their way to the floor and it’s something you need, it’s almost in your reach. As you start to reach the wheel comes with you but is caught in time; Close Call!

Solution: Car organizers for CD’s, iPod and cell phone holders, along with binders are readily available.

#5: Radios, iPods, and Other Electronics.

With today’s advancing technology, electronics are being coming more alive. You can now do almost anything with iPod’s and radios. With such an amazing technology out there and at our finger tips it’s hard to NOT be distracted even walking down the street, let alone driving.

Solution: For iPod’s, make a driving play list so you can listen to your favorite songs hands free. With a high-tech radio, preset your stations or even have the blue-tooth hands-free radio.

#4: “Taking a Deep Breath.”

Road rage is something that sneaks up on a lot of us while driving. We find ourselves yelling at lights, cars and people; someone cuts you off or just is driving 15 under the speed limit. Your first reaction maybe to speed up and give them more than just a piece of your mind, not thinking of the danger you are not only putting yourself in but also the others around you.

Solution: Turn the negative into a positive. Stop, Take a deep breath, and if you can’t handle the rage, pull over to avoid escalating a potentially dangerous situation.

#3: “Yes I’ll have fries with that meal…”

Cars are more than just a transporter. With every place now having the comfort of drive thru’s, the car is now not only a mobile transportation, but also a dinner table. Fast pace atmospheres drive us to be always on the go and always moving, forcing us to eat between the limited time we have in between activities. Spilling your hot morning coffee causing you panic and not have full control of the vehicle is just one example of the many situations that could happen.

Solution: Make time for meals, or even pack snacks for in between trips to help curve hunger.

#2: Limit Phone Calls.

How many times have we passes a car going too slow and the drivers on the phone, too many to count! Cars are the “other office space” on wheels. They host family meetings, conference calls and any other business needed to be dealt with between trips to the grocery store. Dealing with work matters or maybe talking to a relative can take away your total mental focus off the road and on to the conversation at hand.

Solution: Blue-tooth head-sets are widely available and can be paired with any phone these days. They prove the conversation you WANT with the hands-free focus driving NEEDS.

#1: Texting and Social Media.

With the increasing social media movement being forced on the younger generations, anywhere is now considered a social hub. The car, their rooms, even the bathroom can provide a back drop to Instagram pictures, Vine videos, and Facebook updates. Being on all these sites, it seems more and more teens and younger adults are updating their lives on the road. “Becky Smith posted- ‘This traffic on I-94 is CRAZY!!’” is almost too common on the web these days.

Solution: Talk to your kids about the dangers of not having full attention on the road, and also display good driving habits while they are in the car. Also, it can wait; people don’t need to see you driving to know what you look like or if you are having a good hair day.

How to Avoid the “He Said She Said” Game

We all can relate to close calls when it comes to driving. Someone is tailgating, in a rush or just flat out isn’t paying attention to the road. Well what happens when that close call becomes a reality and you’re faced with an accident? Even a minor fender-bender can cost you more than money, but time. In this day and age the top two things people worry about most is TIME and MONEY, and no one ever seems to have enough of either. What if there was a system out there to help you save on BOTH time and money, which is also affordable? Great news, there is!

Coming to a red light at an intersection, you slow down and glance down at your watch thinking “five minutes till I have to be there” yet you are ten minutes away and traffic is heavy today. To your luck the turns green and as you make your way through the light, you hardly notice the F-150 that is inches away from the passenger door. Trying to time a yellow light to make it to work, the F-150 makes contact and you’re now t-boned. Faced with a new problem to add to the time constraint you already have, now the car needs to be fixed. We all have our own versions of the “accident game” but for the most part it’s all the same: blame one another, switch personal and insurance information, take pictures etc. In some cases, court has to be involved to settle disputes between each party; you say the light was green, while he says you’re crazy, it was still green for him. At this point the case as little evidence to go either way, just your luck, the case is dropped and you end up paying for the damages. By the time most accidents are settled with each party, it can be well over a year. What if there was a way to break this circle of headaches and cut down on your TIME invested worrying about this problem, and the MONEY spent fixing this unfortunate issue?

Rewind this accident to the very beginning but change ONE factor, add an In Vehicle Camera System with DVR capability. A tiny camera that is placed inside the car on the windshield, that lets you have up to a 360 viewing field around the car. With such a small difference in a situation, there can be the difference of cutting the time you would spend in court, on the phone with insurance companies etc. in half. Unfortunately it can’t fix your car for you, but it will provide all the information needed to depict an accurate account of has happened. Proving an insurance company with such proof wouldn’t make your policy go up, and with continuous monitoring it could have the chance to actually lower the cost of insurance. With the DVR feature available on most models, important events in a driver’s history can be stored and kept for however long is needed. When walking into court, if needs be, you can accurately present the Who, What, When, Where and How’s of the situation and best of all avoid the “He said She Said” game.
