Now there’s a way for parents to keep track of how Michigan teen drivers are performing behind the wheel.
Forty teenage drivers from southeast Michigan will drive a fleet of specially equipped vehicles for 14 weeks beginning this summer as part of a study to test a suite of advanced vehicle-safety technologies.
Summer is the most dangerous time of year for teen drivers, with nearly twice as many teens dying on America’s roads each day compared to the rest of the year. But a new online program from the University of Michigan helps parents keep their teens safe as they gain experience driving without adult supervision.
Starting today in Michigan, first-time drivers will no longer be allowed on the road after 10 pm, and can only have one other non-family teen passenger in the car.
Michigan is preparing to enact new restrictions on teen drivers-in-training.
Michigan lawmakers are considering a proposal that would put more passenger restrictions on young drivers.
