You’ve no doubt heard the annoying “ding” sound when you forget to buckle your seat belt. Well GM is taking things to a whole new level with its “Teen Driver” feature which is set to debut in the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu. Parents can program the car to give visual or audible warnings when their teens exceed preset speed limits. The system will also turn off the radio and any connected devices until the driver and any passengers are buckled up. Finally the system will provide the parents with a report card of sorts mentioning any red flags like excessive speeds and instances where the antilock brakes were engaged. We can just imagine the eye rolling and groaning already.
