FOR PARENTS OF NEW TEEN DRIVERS
By Elysia Monahan
General Motors has developed a program called Teen Driver that allows parents to feel comfortable handing over the keys to their teenager for the first time. Using a variety of methods to monitor and control the performance of the driver, parents and teenagers are able to feel safe during the process of learning to drive.
“We developed this system so parents could use it as a teaching tool with their kids — they can discuss and reinforce safe driving habits,” GM safety engineer MaryAnn Beebe, said in a statement. “As a mother of two, I know anything that has the potential of keeping one’s family safer is of great value to parents.” (Detroit News)
Teen Driver is available in the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu
