Mary Richards, KSL NewsradioParents looking to keep an eye on their teenager have a new auto insurance option.

When your teenage driver says she's driving to the mall, you can use Teensurance to make sure she gets there. Safeco Insurance Vice President of Consumer Solutions Jim Havens says their online survey lets parents figure out how their teen will drive.

"Think about how that teen behaves outside of the car, what it's like going to school, how they do at school, how they do sports and extracurricular activities. And how is that predictive to what's going to happen behind the wheel?" Havens asks.

The Safeco program includes a GPS tracking system which alerts parents through a text message, email or phone call if the teen is breaking the rules.
