Here's the first thing going in my kids car. Speeders are no problem compared to the teenagers I see wandering all over the road on the phone or texting.

If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.

This will lead to trust issues. you think as a teenager i will come to my parents if i had or have a problem after i found something in my car to keep tabs on me. that right there shows a teenager that you dont trust them. so if you have to put something in there car then dont let them drive

Only thing that is going to do is save you money on insurance. Who says he's not going to drive someone's car or be a rider in one that injuries or kills.

your correct fate and if the insurance is the problem have them pay for there own. i had to. its part of growing up also not having someone spy on you 24-7 is also a problem. hey i heard there having sales on nanny cams also. so if you think this car thing is a good idea your wrong.

If you want to make sure that there is no future problems with breech of trust issues, you could buy one for each car in the family, then discuss the importance of safe driving with the entire family. Let everyone know that there will be one in each car and make sure everyone has access to see how each other is driving. Lead by example.

Or, like I mentioned before, sell his car, buy a huge car and drop a worn out 4 banger in it.

Gun control is like fighting drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to buy cars.

Simple solution... Let him pay his own way. After a few speeding tickets and after he see's his insurance go through the roof he won't drive anymore.

You are certainly entitled to your opinion.
You still get the orange and apples

You can only reduce the risk I agree. I think is you obligation to do whatever is in your power to prevent your kids from being involved in an accident, including discussing the actual problem, let them pay for the insurance, removing driving privileges, etc.

Not too far off topic, but I remember my brother telling me about his daughter, "She opened her mouth and the car keys fell out."

Plain and simple, tell your kid you know he's speeding and if it doesn't stop his driving privileges will be REVOKED. Do it, it's not worth the risking your insurance to his stupidity not to mention DEAD is forever!. I can almost guarantee he's trying the E brake slide.
Trust ? ? ? . . . . Don't talk to me about trust if the evidence shows that trust is NOT warranted ! !

Trusting a kid that clearly does not deserve trust is just plain stupid ! !

Clearly the kid's driving habits can't stand up to scrutiny.

Trust like friends are earned, you don't have a right to either.

There are already more and more cars with logging capabilities, like "black boxes" that can be downloaded after an accident.

Remember a few years ago when it was reported that the new Corvette had that built in ?

Many adults complained loudly.

If the OP, the Government, or any of the posters that feel that this is intrusive or shows a lack of trust, wants to buy me a vehicle, pay for insurance, and buy the gas, they can monitor / speed restrict it any way they want. If I don't accept that deal, I'll pay my own way.

My company put GPS tracking in all our vehicles 3 years ago. Some technicians didn't like it, but tough sh!t, it's not their vehicle. It has been a great tool and we found out that some employees we trusted, couldn't be trusted.

As enticing as it would be to not inform a teenager that his driving was being monitored, I would tell him/her that Daddy was watching. The under dash models are not easy to thwart. And I better not find it sitting in the bushes at the library while the car was elsewhere.

And thank god my parents didn't have the technology.
