COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- "This is the best thing that I've come across."
Joe Rivera, the owner of the Golden Gate Traffic School said this device called DriveID blocks drivers from being able to use their cell phone, eliminating texting while driving, even using social media while behind the wheel.
"If the device is in motion, it will turn the phone off," said Rivera.
So we took it for a spin. You mount the device under the car's rear view mirror. Then pair it with a cell phone by turning on your phone's Bluetooth connection.
The driver won't know if the phone is receiving calls or messages. They can try to use it - "looks like its calling but it just cut out."
We tried it, sending a text message to Rivera's phone while he was driving. It sent us an automatic response, letting us know he was driving.
Meanwhile it sends back emails to parents, alerting them if their teen driver tried using the phone, or tried tampering with the device, it even grades their driving.
"Parents can finally take control," said Rivera.
The device costs about $100. It can be used on most cell phones including iPhones, Blackberry, and Androids.
Rivera is working to get support from local businesses and law enforcement offices, even the Collier County School District.
