Protecting young drivers
The RookieDongle® is a tiny device that plugs into your cars ODB port. It has a built-in GPS and mobile connection, so it's always connected to the cloud.
It is designed to protect young drivers and their passengers against extreme driving. Parents or guardians are notified instantly via SMS or email in case of reckless driving – like serious speeding, sudden acceleration, harsh braking, and extreme RPM levels.
Each trip and driver gets a score, neatly displayed in your secure account. If the rookie is driving within the tolerance level, the locations, speeds, times of departure or arrival remain invisible to the parents. Sounds like a fair deal?Order nowHow does it work?Activate

Young rookie drivers (18-24 years old) in the Netherlands have a risk of accidents that is 5 x greater than experienced drivers (30-59 years old). The risk of young men is even over 7 x as great.
In almost all accident situations, high speed is one of the causes. If a young driver was never involved in speeding offences, then this driver would on average present no higher risk than an older driver.
Although 18- to 24-year-olds represent only 8% of the total population, they represent 37% of the deaths during weekend nights and 33% of the serious injuries during weekend nights.
Inappropriate or excessive speed is the main cause in one in three of all accidents involving deaths or severe injuries.
Speed is the main factor that determines the outcome of an accident.
