Get a text when your kids are speeding!

The East Flemish company DongleApps is marketing a new device that alerts parents when their offspring are driving too fast in their cars. The device will send you, loving, concerned, long-suffering parent, an email or even a text when your son or daughter is speeding.

Paul Janssens of DongleApps: "Parents can use it as an aid. Speed is an important factor in accidents. Young drivers are up to seven times more likely to crash because they are speeding."

Belgium's Traffic Safety Institute has welcomed the new device saying that it's a handy aid for parents worried about how their children observe traffic rules.
