Don’t Forget Your Seat Belt!


Chevrolet is taking direct aim at the rising car crash related deaths amongst teens with their latest addition to the Teen Driver system: Buckle to Drive. Available through Teen Driver mode, Buckle to Drive builds upon the Chevrolet mission to help teen drivers stay safe on the road.

Did you know that buckling your seat belt is the number one action drivers can take to protect themselves in the crash? Teens continue to have the lowest rates of seat belt use.

An industry first, Buckle to Drive reminds young drivers to buckle up before driving. Now a standard feature in the 2020 Traverse, Buckle to Drive prevents the driver home shifting out of “PARK” if the driver’s seat belt is not buckled.

“Buckle to Drive is Chevrolet’s latest feature designed to encourage young drivers to develop safe driving habits right from the start . . . Buckle to Drive is embedded in Chevrolet’s Teen Driver system and is aimed at helping remind teens to buckle up every time they get behind the wheel.” – Tricia Morrow, Chevrolet safety engineer

What is Teen Driver mode?

  • Teen Driver offers an industry-first in-vehicle report card that helps encourage safe driving habits and provides a way for parents and teens to discuss safe driving habits.
  • When active, Teen Driver mode automatically mutes the radio until the driver and front passenger seat belts are fastened.
  • Parents can select a speed warning that, if exceeded, activates a visual and audible warning.
  • Teen Driver mode is now available on the 2020 Traverse, Malibu and Colorado.
