Ensuring Junior Goes For A Mild Ride- New York Times

As if teenagers needed another reason to rebel. Ford has created "MyKey" technology which allows parents to control the driving habits of their children.
"Like V-chips that restrict what children can view on television, MyKey allows
parents to limit teenage drivers to a top speed of 80 miles per hour, cap the
volume on the car stereo, demand seat belt use and encourage other safe-driving
habits."

If I were a teenager, I would make sure never to buy a Ford car when I'm an adult. Wait, no adults are buying Ford cars anyways. I guess invasive technology is not enticing enough to ignore shoddy manufacturing.
