New Technology is Making Automobiles Safer

Posted by Richard Lawson | Mar 20, 2016 | 0 Comments

One of my favorite topics of discussion is new automobile technology and how it will change our lives.  Today's technology already helps cars maintain their lane, avoid collisions, and protect occupants in the event of an accident.  It is an exciting time.  Children born today will probably not have to drive cars the way we do today.  Those same children will be far less likely to die or be injured in a serious traffic accident.

But for now, driving is still a dangerous activity.  Parents are extremely apprehensive when they hand young drivers the key to a car. Luckily, as reported on, there is new technology allows parents to monitor better young drivers.

The 2016 Chevy Malibu has a teen driver setting.  This setting not only warns the driver when they exceed the speed limit, but it also provides a report to parents about their teenager's driving. It is essential the ultimate "tattletale."  It even notifies parents whether the occupants of the vehicle were wearing their safety belts.

Young people need boundaries.  Their brains are not developed sufficiently to understand and weigh risks.  Had my parents had this technology when I was a young driver, I am sure I would have adjusted my behavior accordingly.
