Back to school, back on the road concerns

Techstination feature for Monday, September 6, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     Back to school also means more time back behind the wheel for many parents…and teen drivers.   Chevrolet worked with Harris to conduct a survey and found many of those parents are concerned.  Chevy Safety Engineer Tricia Morrow…also a mom to a teen driver…says safety technology in vehicles can help…

“With my teen on the road I’m able to get in touch with her…able to in many cases..she where she is and where she’s been.”

Even how she is driving…

“We really talk about the importance of using some of that in-vehicle technology like Bluetooth pairing, Apple Carplay, Android Auto.   Everything is set so that she doesn’t have to handle the phone while driving.”

And features like lane keeping assist and automatic emergency braking can make vehicles safer too.
