(HealthDay News) -- Parents have limited control over the actions of a young driver. But they do have control over choice of car.

The DMV.org website suggests:

  • Opting for a four-door sedan with four cylinders, including good safety technology such as anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control and air bags.
  • Choosing a car with a long and excellent crash-safety record.
  • Understanding that higher-end models can be pricier up front, and more expensive to insure.
