Do you want to make it easy for people to snitch on your teenage driver? If so, ReportMyTeen will do the job for you. In a nutshell, you sign up for a cheap annual subscription, you get a bumper sticker like you see on big trucks – Report Bad Driving – with a phone number, and then ReportMyTeen tells you about any calls they receive. Here’s the explanation from the Web site:
ReportMyTeen originated with two professional moms and two teenage sons learning to drive. As moms, we trusted our kids but we were astonished at the level of inexperience and impulsiveness we saw watching our sons drive. We were equally overwhelmed to find out our car insurance rates would be 50% – 100% higher with a teen driver. Our insurance companies told us that these high premiums are due largely to the staggering statistics of accidents and deaths caused by teen drivers. We felt a sense of helplessness knowing that our son’s newfound freedom also came with many risks and dangers. With this in mind, we set out to find a solution. The concept of simply adding a Report My Teen bumper sticker to the vehicle changed the driving behavior of our teens.
