I’m not endorsing Safeco insurance, but their new “Teensurance” program is intriguing. It combines auto insurance with a kind of Big-Brother approach to new teen drivers. Parents can log in to a computer and track where their kids are driving, or at least where the car is. The parents can also get alerts about roadside problems, and the teens can get car doors unlocked with a phone call (in case the keys get locked inside the car).
Safeco also offers some very good information for your teen drivers.
