Apps to track teens' driving habits

Posted: Updated:

Ever wonder what your teen is doing behind the wheel when you're not around? If you're worried they can't stop texting, tweeting, talking or browsing the web now there is an app for that.

Insurance company Esurance and phone company Sprint both offer apps and services to stop users from receiving or sending texts while a car is in motion.

Researchers from the University of North Carolina found that the first phase of driving alone is the deadliest phase. A recent survey from a major insurance company found that 65 percent of parents wanted a better way to keep track of their teens' early driving experience.

The new app from UNC is called Time to Drive. It focuses on some of the things new drivers struggle with.
