Cellcontrol – Backseat Driving from Home


It happened again, another distracted driver killed himself, and the passengers in his car, because he was texting while driving. I’ve often thought that if I only glance at a text quickly, I would be fine. I got away with it a few times, but that doesn’t mean nothing bad will ever happen. It’s amazing how those little beeps that alert you to your messages call out to you when you’re behind the wheel… It’s NEVER that important. I don’t EVER want my daughter to think it’s okay…

Check out cell control,  a new safe driving system that actually disables the use of the driver’s cell phone, while they’re driving. Use it to take away the temptation to text, email, or play a game on a mobile phone while your teen is operating a motor vehicle. Cellcontrol blocks drivers from being able to text message, email, make phone calls and much more. This safe driving system activates automatically when the vehicle is in motion, to create a safe environment not only for your new driver, but for everyone on the road.

Just set up your Cellcontrol one time, you simply plug it in, and you’re protected. You won’t even require any tools. Once installed, the safe driving system is ready to use. Decide which functions are not allowed, such as email, texting, internet, and camera apps, but perhaps, navigation and music are acceptable. Cell control also knows your teenager, so it’s pretty much tamper-free. You get to customize the application to meet your family needs, be as permissive or strict as the situation dictates. Get reports delivered to you via email or text, including the ability to see mileage, speed and usage data. Yup, you can have that much control. Learn more at
