Chevy has learned that most parents are worried about their teens getting back on the road this school year. The brand worked with the The Harris Poll to find out how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected parents’ driving skills, and what challenges teen drivers face. They surveyed over 1,000 adults with school-aged kids. Here are the findings:
- 78% of parents worry about their child on the road because other drivers seem less safe than they were before the pandemic
- 73% of them have noticed more aggravated drivers on the road than before the pandemic
- 61% of them are concerned about their teen on the road because they didn’t have as much driving practice during the pandemic
- 47% of them say the pandemic has delayed their child from getting a license
Parents even admitted to being out of practice on the road now. More than half said they drove less during the pandemic, and over 60 percent also said they drove more “carefree” because there were less people on the road. The majority also said they drive more defensively now with more people on the road.
Chevy strives to keep everyone protected on the road. So the brand loads all of its vehicles with the very best safety equipment. Here’s what they have.
Chevy’s Teen Driver System
Chevy’s Teen Driver System to help parents coach their new drivers. They can set a speed alert, volume limit and more. They can also check the in-vehicle report car to track their teen’s driving performance. It shows how far their drove, their maximum speed, and other starts. The system works with or without parents in the car.
