Greg Fulton 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 a blind-spot/lane-change alert (notifies the driver when another vehicle is approaching on either side), lane assist technology (gently guides the car, if it begins to drift, back into the proper lane), a backup camera display, backup alerts, a pedestrian sensor, automatic braking and a radio that won't come on unless everyone is buckled in. Said vehicle 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.
