Slideshow: In Pictures: High-Tech Tools for Keeping Teen Drivers Safe

2 of 7

Standard on most Ford and Lincoln models, Ford’s MyKey system uses a programmable key to help parents control how their teens drive. Parents can use this key to limit the car’s speed, limit the stereo volume, keep the stereo from turning on until all occupant seatbelts are fastened and sound chimes when the car reaches 45, 55 and 65 mph. Like other automakers, Ford offers optional hands-free control of cell phones, including a feature that can block incoming text messages or automatically read them to the driver.
