Parents of teen drivers have a new way to ease their anxiety about handing over the car keys: Surprisingly, it involves handing over the car keys.
Only not just any keys: But those armed with MyKey technology, a system that uses ID chips to pre-set a car's top speed, such as 65 mph, in the name of safety. Other programmable features include pre-setting the stereo volume controls (no more blasting tunes), and seatbelt alerts.
The system, which is being developed by Ford (STOCK QUOTE: F), will reportedly be available to consumers in 2010.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Is a pre-programmed car a good way to teach teens about responsible driving?
