Record GPS Tracking Sales As Parents Monitor Recently Qualified New Drivers

Record GPS Tracking Sales As Parents Monitor Recently Qualified New Drivers

Britain’s parents are taking increasingly drastic measures to ensure their children stay safe on the road say GPS tracking company, Bluetrack. It has reported record sales for its BOND GPS tracker with anxious parents snapping up the device in order to monitor recently qualified young drivers both overtly and covertly.
Like its namesake, BOND is designed to work discreetly and effectively. The innovative tracker makes use of wireless charging technology, is 100% waterproof and can be easily hidden from view.

The Bond tracker is packed with performance and capable of storing around ten thousand positions within its internal memory. Even when there is no GSM coverage, the memory stores the position for later use ensuring there is no break in the tracking line when the data is viewed.
Keith Walker, Director of Bluetrack says, “There has been a lot of press coverage recently about suggested changes to the age at which teenagers can obtain a full driving license and measures such as restricted driving hours put forward by a national think tank. In the middle of this, it seems that many parents are already being proactive – we have noticed a growing practise of parents purchasing the BOND tracker in order to monitor their children both openly and secretly when they’re on the road.
“It seems that some parents are using GPS trackers openly so the driver knows it is on board thus making them aware in the hope that they can avoid the two strikes and you are out rule. Those that are using them covertly are obviously giving a bit more freedom to the young drivers in the household but must be using the information somehow, we think perhaps with more drastic action such as hiding the keys for a while.”

While the drivers under observation may not be pleased with the knowledge that their parents are keeping track of them on the road, youngsters aged between 17 and 24 accounted for a fifth of deaths on British roads in 2011 and are statistically at a much higher risk of being involved in a serious or fatal accident. The Department for Transport calculates that young drivers drive around 5% of all the miles driven in Britain but are involved in about 20% of the crashes where someone is killed or seriously injured.

In light of these figures, there is increasing pressure on the government to introduce new regulations for teenagers getting behind the wheel. Research produced by the Transport Research Laboratory in October suggested that the eligibility for a full licence be increased to 19, a probationary period be employed after successfully passing the test, a minimum of one year’s lessons for young drivers be required before a test can even be booked and curfews enforced for night driving.  Any changes are expected to take at least two years to be introduced to the nation’s roads, leaving many parents to take drastic action now for peace of mind.
Covert and portable, the BOND tracker can be applied to the underside of the young driver’s vehicle and benefits from wireless charging via charging matt. It has a 15 day tracker battery life and an optional battery save mode which offers a choice of reporting once per hour or once every four hours. It can be used as a live tracker to transmit its location every few seconds and has an ARM / Sleep mode which sends an SMS when the tracker changes location after a period of being stationary.
Keith Walker added, “We are continually surprised as to the uses customers are employing our devices for with some models such as the BOND going through the door as quickly as we can make them.”

The BOND GPS Tracker is priced at £215.  To find out more and buy online visit

Be afraid, UK cheaters. CheaterVille has come to the UK

Think carefully before becoming a love rat or a cheater! Or you may end up on!

The growing level of anti-cheating awareness has already attracted millions of users in the USA and Canada to CheaterVille, and according to founder & CEO James McGibney, users in the UK have been patiently waiting for CheaterVille's arrival for some time.

He said: "Over the past year we've received an overwhelming amount of emails, in the hundreds of thousands, from individuals from all over the UK who wanted to post an alleged cheater on our site to help warn others.

“The media in the UK has been overwhelmingly supportive of CheaterVille and our fight against infidelity over the past year and we're very excited about this latest expansion."

With the new launch in the UK, users can now submit the names, stories, and photos of alleged cheaters to help make others aware of their 'disrespectful' deeds.

In a world where temptation and lust are facilitated by online media, where does moral accountability fit in with all of this?

With terms like 'discreet adultery' and 'cyber affair', how is the truth to be told and where can it be found? 

CheaterVille was created with one simple goal in mind, to keep you ahead of the game. Even when what you learn hurts you.

Put in simple terms, CheaterVille can give you the inside scoop on that 'special' someone before you're another heartbroken mess that the cheater leaves in their toxic wake.

CheaterVille gathers information from a variety of sources using their proprietary advanced search engine algorithm.

They employ the world's largest database of ousted cheaters which will show you postings from other CheaterVille members on a specific person and information gathered from the web.Often the name of a cheater, if they someone is registered with, will, when entered into Google or another search engine, will come up with their CheaterVille tag. 

If you meet someone and want to know if they are playing it straight, or just trying to play you, CheaterVille will let you know if they are married or have a sordid past.

If you're in a relationship and want to make sure your significant other stays on the straight and narrow, CheaterVille can alert you if anything is posted about them - good or bad and free of charge, too.

In a way, the CheaterVille listing for someone is like an ankle bracelet that criminals are made to wear.

Of course, employers who need to ensure that their new hires or existing staff are not cheaters can use Cheaterville to check them out. Whilst some people may baulk at this idea, if there is someone who is a serial cheater who seems to target married women, then a school or youth programme organisation (for example) may be -rightly- concerned about such behaviour.

Whilst a CRB check will show up criminal activity, even an enhanced CRB check will not show up behaviour which, whilst morally dubious, is not illegal. But which might result in civil action against a cheater's employer, should they arguably use their employment as a cover for their sex lives or as a way to meet potential victims.

These are the profile links of three people who have been reported via CheaterVille. One is in the UK, one in the USA and one in Australia:-

Are you a Kamikaze lover?

Do you climb aboard your plane, take off, aim it at the bridge of the SS Relationship, and watch the anxious face of the ship's captain as you fly directly toward the bridge, ready to destroy your own ship?

Of course you don't! For there's nothing that ever goes wrong in your relationship that is ever your fault, is there?

Because whilst it is true that it takes two to make a relationship work, it is perfectly possible for one partner in a relationship to damage it. By being a Kamikaze lover. Perhaps to even damage it beyond easy repair. If you want to learn how you can damage or wreck an otherwise perfect relationship, read on.

1) Talk with you partner, but never listen to what they have to say. You will find that eventually a combination of dismissive put downs, stony silences and angry yelling will shut them up. Perhaps for good.
2) Always ensure that you are in the right, even -or especially- when you suspect or know that you are in the wrong.
3) Belittle your partner in private and in public. Mock their hobbies, interests and their work abilities. You can extend this to mocking or belittling members of their family and the friends of your partner. Be as negative and as dismissive as possible. The key word here is “alienation.”
4) Use selective memory. Always remember the bad things that he or she has done, but only the good that you have done. Should this prove difficult, use a sub-technique. Employ blatant lies to dismiss or gloss over the memories of your partner. “Oh, really? Well that’s not how I remember it!” works perfectly well in a pinch.
5) Be controlling of your relationship and of your partner. Find out which techniques work best for you. Faux anger, yelling, screaming, tantrums, tears, threats (leaving, taking the children, suicide, violence, etc.) Whatever combination of techniques you decide is best for you, develop them properly and refine them. Remember, practice really does make perfect. Eventually your partner will be so controlled that you will only need a key word or gesture to make them do what you want. Or to simply quit the relationship, whichever suits your purposes.
6) If you have a problem with someone or something outside of the relationship, use Blame Transfer to place the blame upon the shoulders of your partner. This way you can find an outlet for your anger, but will not have to face the real problem.
7) Find fault in anything or everything they do. Be creative.
8) Always ascribe malice to the actions of your partner. This way you will not have to identify what is happening in your relationship, and you can remove any onus on yourself to identify any problems that you might be bringing to the table.
9) If your partner is involved in any dispute –with a member of your family or their family, a business partner or work colleague or a neighbour- always presume that your partner is in the wrong. This saves a great deal of effort of trying to establish what has happened and on what side you should be.
10) Always play the martyr when discussing your partner with friends or family. This will earn you much undeserved sympathy, and, should you achieve the ultimate goal of destroying your relationship, you will have set the scene for many hours of debating what an absolute rat he or she was.

Don't Ask Don't tell. Does that really work?

Around half of men and women quizzed anonymously on an affair dating website claimed their partners had either ‘given them permission to have an affair’ or ‘probably knew but don’t ask’.

The UK-based website asked nearly 1000 regular users how they deal with the awkward issue of their extramarital love life with their partners.

Nearly one in three (30%) said that their partner ‘had no idea of their affairs and fear their marriage or relationship would end if their partner found out.’

22% said that their partner ‘had no idea about their affairs but they would probably work things out if they got caught.’ (EDITOR: They wish!)

Surprisingly though, these expected responses were only in the majority by a fraction. Nearly as many had a laissez faire response to playing away. Another third (30%) answered that ‘their partner probably knows but doesn’t ask,’ and a minority 18% answered that their partner granted them permission to use the site.

(EDITOR: It could, of course, be that the betraying spouses are in fact, deluding themselves and pretending to themselves that their betrayed spouse knows about their cheating and may, in fact, be in for a very rude awakening when they come face-to-face with an angry spouse when they have discovered their affair.)

I need to raise £1,000 or so to buy my wife an Apple Computer

Yes, that's what I need to do!

My wife does not get on very well with PCs. But she does get on very well with Apple computers. She is an Apple girl at heart.

And, because I love my wife very much indeed, I am going to try to raise £1,000 to buy her an Apple Mac Book Pro.

How am I going to do this? I haven't the faintest idea, yet!

But I will be working on it!

A patriotic family. Can buying British still work?

The Bradshaw family would describe themselves as a normal British family.
They reside in a a two-bed semi-detached house in the town of Westerham, which is in Kent. 
Emily Bradshaw teaches, James works in London. They have one son, Lucan, who is now 2½ years old.

This year they made a rather odd New Year’s resolution.

Peeved by the stagnant economy and feeling a bit of national pride (post-London 2012 Olympics, Golden Jubilee and all that) they decided to see if they, as a family, could survive by buying and using only British made goods and British services.

Everything they use must be made or provided by a British firm that operates in Britain and employees British staff.

 Can the family manage to cope and survive (or even thrive?) without foreign imports? The Bradshaw family is going to is family are going to find out. The hard way!

They will keep a running commentary, via their blog at and their Twitter account (@britishfamily), on the problems they may face (or not!) while trying to buy British.

They aim to promote any gems of British manufacturing that they find during this interesting process. They'll also hope to pass along practical that they find out along the way.
