Partnership with DriversEd.com Offers Peace of Mind to Parents

A primary focus for Urgent.ly has long been driver safety. We offer overall peace of mind from your driveway to the highway, and we’ve done this by delivering trackable roadside help, on-demand, in as little as eight minutes. Add to that our FamilyView feature, where parents can monitor requests for help by their driving age kids, and we think it’s becoming a complete package.

Add to that our FamilyView feature, where parents can monitor requests for help by their driving age kids, and we think it’s becoming a complete package.

Today it becomes a little completer (:-) as we’re extending that peace of mind to our newest partner: DriversEd.com

DriversEd.com, which is the nation’s largest provider of online novice driver training (and the first to go online in 1998), beginning today is offering a 50 percent discount on the first service call to all new California DriversEd.com students.

This gives parents one less thing to worry about as their kids learn to drive.

So if you’ve know someone who’s ready to get behind the wheel, point them over here so they can take one thing off the worry list on their way to becoming a driver.

Many individuals and local authorities have already jumped on the opportunity to remind users to drive safely. There are even signs popping up on highways to encourage safer driving.

Luckily, there are tools out there to help the tech-obsessed (or the poke-obsessed) improve their driving. One of our favorites is an app called TrueMotion Family! The app analyzes your driving in order to provide you with a score - and insights as to how you drive. It's perfect for parents who want to monitor their teen drivers. The app gives parents the power to see where their kids drive, and produces a 'report card' on their driving in addition to an assessment of whether they were driving distracted (using their cell phone). Plus, families have access to roadside assistance on-demand from right within the TrueMotion app.

I don’t remember Ash, Misty, or Brock driving cars in their quest to be the very best, like no one ever was. And there aren’t vehicles any in PokemonGO. At Urgent.ly, we love the game and just like you, we’re prepared to travel across the land searching far and wide to catch 'em all, but we encourage you to put safety first in your travels! Remember that the power of Pokemon is awesome in augmented reality but automobiles are a powerful tool meant for use in the real world and require optimum focus to operate safely. In a world we must defend, you can start by driving safely, and catch and train ‘em all when you’re not operating a vehicle.
