Teen Driver Technology
- Data show that crash rates during teens’ pre-licensing, adult supervised driving practice are low, then increase about tenfold when young drivers begin to drive independently. In-vehicle technologies aim to continue this low-risk interval once teens begin driving on their own by providing feedback to drivers as well as to parents.
- New technology on the market can help keep your teen driver safe. Check out some of the latest and greatest technologies available.
- The rapid evolution of computing, communication, and sensor technology is likely to affect young drivers more than others.
- According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the leading cause of death for teenagers in this country is motor-vehicle fatality. Many of today’s high-tech safety measures can provide assistance for drivers of all ages, but some automakers also have begun focusing directly on those drivers who are younger and have less experience behind the wheel.
