Choosing the Best Vehicle for Your Teen

Teenagers are among the riskiest drivers, but they often end up with inexpensive vehicles that don't offer adequate protection in a crash. To help families find safer vehicles that fit within their budgets, IIHS began publishing a list of recommended used vehicles for teens.

Cellcontrol Drive ID

End texting, emailing, and inappropriate phone use while driving. That's smart. DriveID™'s groundbreaking technology allows Cellcontrol™ to accurately detect who sits in the driver's seat and only disables that individual's mobile devices - leaving passengers free to talk, text, and browse.

Drive Square Driving Simulation System

Triad is now offering an advanced driving simulator system that enables a student/employee to drive in a virtual space while operating the controls of an actual vehicle. Using your own vehicle or a driving school vehicle, the participant drives onto a pair of turntables. Simulator sensors and actuators are quickly and non-invasively clipped on to the pedals and other applicable controls.  A 360 degree panoramic view of the road and surrounding area is presented to the participant via virtual reality goggles. Training on a simulator is not about replacing  behind-the-wheel driving hours. It is about making safer drivers through exposure to hard to replicate experiences. Great opportunity for schools to present different driving scenarios to students or fleet companies for in-service training. Contact us for more information.
