If your teenager has just gotten a driver's license, it may be hard to imagine handing over the keys to your brand new car, but that may be the smartest vehicle to choose.
The first years teenagers spend as drivers are very risky. In fact, teen drivers have the highest death rates of any age group. In 2007, 4,946 teenagers died in motor vehicle crashes, and many more were left severely and permanently injured by crashes.
While getting a driver's license is an exciting rite-of-passage for teens, it can be enough to make a parent frantic. However, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the Insurance Information Institute (I.I.I.) say there is something worried parents can do to protect their teens - choose a safe vehicle.
