Straight Talk Wireless recently launched their Safe Driver Car Connection device.

StraightTalk_Logo_OneColorI am thrilled to be teaming up with Straight Talk wireless on this program. This partnership means I am able to attend an event in Atlanta this Friday (the 17th) to learn more about SDCC, so I can share this program with YOU.

However, if you happen to be in the Atlanta area, you are invited to join as well.


National Teen Driver Safety Week is coming up – October 19-25. In case you missed my lamenting… I AM THE MOTHER OF A TEEN DRIVER. Straight Talk is hosting the event in Atlanta with Driver’s Edge to celebrate the Straight Talk Safe Driver Initiative.

As the mom of a teen driver, I am ALL OVER ANYTHING that increases my child’s (man child, that is) safety behind the wheel. A little bit about the event:

  • The event will demonstrate the dangers of distracted driving through a real-life driving course and how the Safe Driver Car Connection can help keep your family safe.
  • The Straight Talk Safe Driver event will take place on Friday, October 17 from 10 AM to 2 PM at the Six Flags Over Georgia.
  • You are encouraged to come to the event and experience the test driving course for yourself. See first-hand how distractions can affect your driving and learn more about the Safe Driver Car Connection available with Straight Talk.

If interested in attending the event, you can register here:

If you can’t be there, that’s perfectly fine. Follow #STSafeDriver on Twitter this Friday for real-time updates from the event or tune in as I will be sharing what I learn with you in an event wrap-up post next week. I am so very curious about Straight Talk’s Safe Driver Car Connection and how it really works. I am looking forward to talking to Straight Talk representatives and law enforcement about this new tool created to help keep teens more safe on the road, teach safe driving habits, and keep parents informed when we are not in the passenger seat.

Let’s face it; operating a motor vehicle is a BIG DEAL. As I sit in the passenger seat while my son clocks his 48 hours of parental-guided road time in the next 8 months, I realize how MANY distractions there are. Driving has become such a… habit for me. I have forgotten how many things new drivers have to measure, balance, and weigh while traveling 25, 35, even 55 miles per hour.


The Safe Driver Car ConnectionTM an easy-to-use device that that plugs into your car’s computer system (OBD-II port) to help monitor, manage and maintain your family’s vehicles. It communicates with the Car Connection smartphone app to restrict phone usage while driving, monitor and track driving behaviors, report vehicle health and provide the location of the vehicle. Key features include:

  • Cell Phone Restriction – Works via the ZoomSafer application for Android and iPhone. When installed, ZoomSafer will send a signal to the Safe Driver Car Connection device to disable all text functionality and inbound/outbound calling while the car is in motion. When a call or text is received, the sender is automatically notified that the driver will call them back. (HOW COOL IS THAT?!)
  • Vehicle Location – Makes it simple to keep up with your teen and the family car, Vehicle Location tracks the vehicle every 5 minutes. It also creates a path as the vehicle drives which can be reviewed on the Car Connection app or the desktop user portal at a later date.
  • Safety Zone Alerts – Keeps parents in the know by sending an alert when the car enters and more importantly exits the pre-set safety zones.
  • Lot Spot – Automatically logs the location of the vehicle when the ignition is shut off and will provide you with Google
