Chevrolet Helps Parents Worried about Teen Driving

Being a parent is hard. While each stage of parenting comes with its own challenges, perhaps one of the most stressful times to be a parent is when your children have entered their teenage years. Some seem to suddenly develop an intense need to rebel and challenge the rules in every way.

Perhaps this is why a new study shows that parents are worried about teen driving more than many other factors, including academic performance, drug use, sexual activity, and problems with friends.

With this study in mind, Chevrolet is now offering its Teen Driver Technology on 10 of its 2017 models. This feature even includes a vehicle report card that shows certain aspects of how your teen drove, including distance driven, maximum speed, overspeed warnings, forward collision alerts, and more. Parents can then use this information to help their teens learn more about best practices for driving.

Teen Driver will work together with Chevrolet’s suite of active safety features like Lane Departure Warning, Side Blind Zone Alert, and more, and it prevents these features from being manually disabled. It also mutes all audio until front seats passengers have buckled their seatbelts.

If you have a teen driver at home, this new features is available on the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, Camaro, Colorado, Cruze, Malibu, Silverado, Silverado HD, Suburban, Tahoe, and Volt.
