Adam Nickel thinks his teenage daughter, who’s already hit three solid objects with her car —thankfully, no humans or other moving vehicles included — would do better with a car that comes equipped with blind-spot/lane-change alert (notifies driver when another vehicle is approaching on either side), lane assist (gently guides car, if it begins to drift, back into proper lane), backup camera display, backup alerts, pedestrian sensor, automatic braking, and a radio that won’t come on unless everyone is buckled in. Said auto also has a computer program that monitors a teen driver’s performance, and can be activated without a teen’s knowledge. The car in question is a 2016 Chevrolet Malibu.
