About MOTOsafety

MOTOsafety is a web-based software and mobile app that provides parents with real-time and historical information about their child's daily driving habits. Data is collected using a small GPS device that installs directly into the vehicle. Customers may choose between a removable plugin tracker or a hard-wired option. Both devices are small in size, easy to install, and are not visible in most vehicles. Parents log in to secure web-based software to review daily reports on speed, rapid acceleration, harsh braking, routes traveled, and times and locations of driving activities.
