Concerned about lending your car to your Teen? Know what they do when you’re not there!

26 07 2004

Apparently “in-car sensor systems” are becoming more and more popular.  Some are for tracking stolen vehicles, and others can monitor cornering, acceleration, seatbelt use, and location data for downloading later.

So, when little Jimmy says “I don’t know how that scratch got in the passenger door” you can check the logs and see that he took that corner at 120, and probably grazed the rocks.  Busted.  Will this kind of “paranoia” make teens drive more safely.  Maybe.  What do you think?

Thanks Engadget.
