Most teen-related vehicle crashes are due to inexperienced drivers. Once teens pass their driver’s test and receive their license, many mistakenly believe they’re experienced drivers. Not so.

Sadly, according to the National Safety Council, car crashes impact individuals of all ages, but are the leading cause of death in teens. In 2016, there were a total of 4,853 crash-related deaths that involved at least one teen driver.

Becoming licensed only means your teen has passed their on-road test and met the practice hours required by the state. Although at this point they do have some basic knowledge of being able to navigate their vehicles in challenging situations like high traffic areas, they still need to gain a lot more driving experience.

Here are some areas of teen driver inexperience:

  1. Vehicle Handling
  • How the vehicle’s balance is affected by braking, acceleration, deceleration and turns
  • Adjusting to the weight and size of the vehicle
  • Contact road patches
  • How to regain control in front- and rear-wheel drive vehicle skids

GPS vehicle tracking is a highly useful tool in many rights. Unfortunately, many car dealerships fail to recognize the substantial benefit it offers in discouraging late payments from their customers. When customers know that you can track the precise location of their vehicles and recover them at the first or second missed payment, they are highly motivated to make their payments on time.

The key, of course, is to be up front with customers when they purchase their vehicles about this policy so that it will serve as the deterrent you have in mind to make it work. While you do not need to threaten repossession or recovery at the first missed payment, the fact remains that GPS makes it easier to repossess vehicles once customers default on their loans.

Why does this matter?

First of all, prevention is the best cure. If customers never miss a single payment, the risks of defaulting on their vehicles is greatly reduced. The threat of a repossession after only one day offers substantial motivations to customers to make their payments in full each and every time.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is capturing and tagging manatees to answer certain research questions regarding the importance to management and conservation of this endangered species.  The FWC has the permission and authority to capture and tag the manatees through a federal U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service permit.

Generally, researchers capture manatees to provide them with a health assessment on site before they tag them and release them for a research project. Through GPS tracking technology, researchers can assess the health of each before they’re included into the research study as well as to ensure the tagging gear fits properly. Since the 1990s, the standard capture methods have been nets deployed from a particular manatee rescue/capture vessel. Researchers can capture manatees either alongshore or in open water.
