AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- There are 2 million first-time drivers each year, 68% of whom admit to texting and driving. As a result, teens are eight times more likely to be in an accident, and sadly, now texting while driving is the #1 killer of young drivers, with over 3,000 deaths per year.

Concordia High School in Austin, TX has teamed up with 4Parents to help put a stop to texting and driving. The 4Parents-LifeSaver app utilizes GPS technology to reduce or stop distracted driving. Now parents can partner with their kids in a responsible strategy to eliminate this risk to both the teen drivers and their passengers.
“Our family of apps empowers parents to become involved in their children’s digital lives. We have a broad list of capabilities to manage and monitor their phones, with one of the most important being to protect young drivers from distracted driving,” says Brandon Frye, Founder.
Many of the Concordia High School students fall into the “first time driver” category. “4Parents is not just of vital interest to parents – it is for anyone who cares about kids, like teachers, schools, churches, and communities. We care about the safety of our student drivers, so we endorse the 4Parents app program and encourage all parents of teens to implement these technology solutions to protect both drivers and passengers,” says David Mueller, Executive Director of Concordia High School – Austin, TX.
