Safety Solutions: Teen Driver Features
Teen drivers continue to pose a risk for the road.
Teens tend to be more distracted, listen to their music louder, are more likely to text, and oftentimes drive without a seatbelt. In fact, the fatal crash rate for teens is 3 times greater than for drivers age 20 and over.
Chevy is working to become a part of the solution. Chevy has created a feature, specifically for teen drivers, that will temporarily block the auto from shifting into gear if the driver’s seat belt is not buckled. A message will alert the driver to buckle up in order to shift into gear.
This industry first feature will come standard in the 2020 models of the Chevy Malibu, Traverse, and Colorado as a part of the Chevy “Teen Driver” package.
