New Ford Focus provides safety features for teenage drivers

The 2010 and 2011 Ford Focus provides a safety feature for teenage drivers. A standard safety feature on all new models is the “MyKey Safety System” which provides a specialized car key for teen drivers which allows parents to set safety features for their teen drivers including:

  • limiting the top speed of vehicle
  • enabling alerts which provides a tone when the vehicle hits 45, 55 and 65 mph.
  • enabling traction control
  • muting the car radio until everyone in the vehicle buckles up
  • controlling the radio volume

Ford also provides the MyKey system in Taurus and F-150 models and it plans to make it standard on other vehicles including the Fiesta in the future.

Ford also believes that the MyKey system will be a desired feature for fleet vehicles.

Car accidents are the leading cause of fatalities among teenagers. In 2008, 3,500 teenagers were killed and 350,000 were injured in motor vehicle-related accidents.
