Chevrolet Teen Driver Technology Review

Teen drivers may be taught how to drive well and are often capable of making good decisions, yet the one drawback they have in common is lack of experience. Without that driving ‘muscle memory’ built-in, they have to learn, often the hard way—like the rest of us—through repetition and experiencing the seemingly endless scenarios that call on driving wisdom to successfully navigate through.
