Most drivers are reluctant to hand over their keys to others—be it the punk who does the valet parking, the self-styled rock star at home or the freeloading colleague. Now there is hope for them to stay in control, thankfully without much of an argument!
Volvo calls their control device ‘Red Key’ while Ford does it with ‘MyKey’. The key to both gadgets are pre-set limits and functions that cannot be turned off. Safety settings are maxed out; speed limit is set to safe levels; and speakers are prevented from blasting through the sunroof! Not surprisingly, someone has described the Ford MyKey as “a remote babysitter for children while they are behind the wheel”.
