Device by Ford Will Help Parents Limit Teen Drivers Speed

Starting next year, Ford Motor Co. will allow parents to limit the speed at which their teenage children drive their car. The company will roll out a new feature on many 2010 models that can limit teen drivers to 80 mph (130 kph), using a computer chip in the key. Parents in the United States, where most teens can get their drivers license at 16, also have the option of programming the car key to limit the audio system's volume, and to sound continuous alerts if the driver doesn't wear a seat belt.
