YOU WANT TO PUT YOUR TEEN IN REALISTIC, DISTRACTING DRIVING SITUATIONS? PUT A HOLOGRAM OF OUR MOTHER, CIRCA 1987, IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT NEXT TO THEM
This driving simulator for teens in training has been getting a good deal of press in the new year, and appears to be a brilliant innovation to make teens more attentive on the road.
