New technology allows parents to watch their teen drivers in action behind the wheel.

The Drive Cam sits on the dashboard and shows the driver and the road in front of the car.

The device records 10 seconds before and after the car's weight shifts dramatically.

The video is e-mailed to the parents.

“It’s a good chance for the parents to talk to the kids about certain things,” said Adam Frederick of American Family Insurance.

Drive Cam costs $500 and there is a monthly $30 service fee.
