Illinois dealer offers technology for safer teen driving

MyKey technology lets parents set limits on a cars speed and radio volume when their teenager drives it, and the Wickstrom Auto Group in Barrington, Ill., installs the program on every car it sells, reports the Barrington Courier-Review.

MyKey is in keeping with the Governors Highway Safety Associations recommendation that parents become more involved in their teenagers driving.

With several keys to the same car, parents use an administrators key to program their teens key. Parents can restrict the radio volume and set a speed limit, after which an audible warning is heard. They can also create a warning sign for low fuel.

MyKey was developed two years ago for businesses with fleets, so the businesses wouldnt be responsible for their drivers speeding tickets.
