Chevrolet is hitting home the fact most teen drivers exhibit poor driving behavior from time to time. It may not be every teenager, and it may not be every time, but it happens, no doubt.
The brand has published a new study showing what worries parents most about their adolescents, and to some surprise, behavior behind the wheel topped the study. To be fair, academic performance came in right behind “driving without adult supervision”, but it also surpassed “drug and alcohol use.”
With the data, Chevrolet reiterates how its Teen Driving System can help curb bad habits behind the wheel with its slew of active safety features now available on 10 Chevrolet models.
In fact, Chevrolet has even added a few new features for 2017 to some models to keep things tame behind the wheel. They include:
- Maximum speed limiter
- Configurable audio volume limit
- Traction control activations
- Wide-open throttle events
- Tailgating alerts, if equipped
The non-subscription system can be found on the following Chevrolet models:
- Chevrolet Bolt EV
- Chevrolet Camaro
- Chevrolet Colorado
- Chevrolet Cruze
- Chevrolet Malibu
- Chevrolet Silverado
- Chevrolet Silverado HD
- Chevrolet Suburban
- Chevrolet Tahoe
- Chevrolet Volt
A record number of teenage drivers will be hitting the roads in the United States this year, as the Center For Disease Control named the month of August the most popular birth month in the year 2000. Yes, those kids born in the year 2000 will be driving. Feel old yet?
