AAA is offering a device that allows parents to set driving parameters for their teens vehicle.

With an onboard device, parents can set speed limits, curfews, and even geographic boundaries on their young drivers vehicle. You can also pinpoint the vehicle's location.

If those set parameters are broken, parents will receive an email or a text messages notifying them.

While some think this could be considered an invasion of privacy, AAA maintains it's not about spying on teens.

"The hope is that through the various tools that are available to the parent, they will be able to have conversations about safety, and be able to talk to their teen about speeding and driving past curfews, and other key aspects," Cletus Nunes, a Developer for AAA says.

You can sign the First Coast News pledge promising to be a safe driver, just look for the Great First Coast Hang Up.
