So, I discussed with you in a previous blog the importance of chauffeured transportation on prom night. Safety is key on a night full of distractions so that your kids are not only secure, but also having the time of their lives in their own limousine.
I also gave you some suggestions on what to look for in a reputable transportation company. Ask how old the vehicles are, check on insurance and compliance with state laws, get it all in writing – those were just a few suggestions. Well today I want to add another bullet to the list: GPS technology.
There are very few transportation providers that offer this service, but believe me, it is well worth doing the research to find them. Today’s GPS livery technology offers you a bird’s eye view of the night your child is having by not only tracking the course your child is taking, but by giving you a specific URL and password so that you can see a continually updated map of his or her locations.
Certainly your children might balk at something like this – why would they want you watching their every move? But consider this – what if there was an emergency at home and you needed to get in touch with your child? What if you realized at the last minute that your daughter forgot her lavender purse? Or your son his date’s corsage? Technology like this is an asset and should be used as a compliment to caring parenting.
And let’s face it – sure we trust our kids…right? But maybe we don’t trust their friends so much? A reputable limousine company has a prom policy that mandates certain procedures, like putting purses and bags in the trunk – after a search to be sure they're free of anything illegal. If the kids ask to go somewhere off the pre-determined path, a reliable company will be sure that parents are immediately notified. Maybe those crazy kids just want to hit Krystal after a night of dancing…but maybe not. And parents should know.
But overall let them enjoy their night! And with the newest GPS technology offered – you do the same!Tags: chauffeured transportation, limousine, limousine company, prom
