College Car Safety Tips

It’s that time of the year – students are heading back to college!  If your college student is taking a car with him/her to campus, here are some safety tips to keep in mind:

  • Park in well-lit areas and be aware of your surroundings.
  • Have your cell phone readily available when walking back from the parking lot in case of an emergency.
  • Make sure your windows are up and your car doors are locked.
  • Keep your valuables hidden, as well as any personal information/identification such as mail or bills.
  • Keep your car keys in a secure spot in your dorm room and have them out and ready when walking to your car.
  • Follow your campus’ traffic rules.
  • Always be alert and focused while driving. There are many pedestrians and bicyclists on campus, some who are not always paying attention.
  • Never drink and drive.
  • Never text and drive.

To give yourself some peace of mind while your child is away at school, install a T3 from 911Tracker.  If your child’s vehicle is stolen, moves without authorization, or is involved in an accident, the T3 will notify your child and you (as the emergency contact), and can connect  you directly to the 911 operator located nearest the vehicle. Not only will the T3 protect your child’s car from theft, but you can keep track of the vehicle without being intrusive. You have the ability check the location of your child’s vehicle at any time by sending a text message to the T3.  The T3 will respond with a text showing GPS speed, direction, and location.

T3 Tech Tip: The T3 will automatically notify the owner if the vehicle battery is getting low.

Must-Have Accessories for your Car this Fall

Fall is just about here. Is your car ready? Here are some must-have accessories to keep on hand this season.

Bluetooth tracking tag. The lazy days of summer have ended, and you probably now have a lot on your mind. The last thing you want to worry about is where you placed your keys. You’ll always be able to find them with a key finder such as this.

Emergency kit. Unfortunately emergencies happen. It’s always best to be prepared. Throw a kit like this in your trunk, and you’ll be able to handle most situations that arise.

Windshield washer fluid.  As the temperatures drop, you’ll want to replace your windshield washer fluid with one suited for colder weather.

Trash cans. Fall means kids sports…which means carpools…which means messy cars. Keep all those snack wrappers in one place with a car trashcan such as this.

The T3: Car theft happens in every season, so protect your car with the T3 Vehicle Security System. The T3 alerts you immediately if your car has an emergency or unauthorized movement. You call the T3 to connect a 3-way call to the 911-Operator located closest to your car – even if you are thousands of miles away. You are talking directly to police within seconds of the emergency. No call center is used – saving you time and money. For more information and to purchase your T3 system visit our website.

TECH TIP: The T3 owner sets their phone number in the T3 memory and T3 always sends notifications to the owners phone.  T3 will only answer calls from the owner’s phone and from the owner’s authorized emergency contacts.
