This one plugs into a cig lighter, but can also be hardwired. Not cheap though.
GPS-Buddy CONNECT GPS vehicle tracker at Crutchfield.com

You probably should just enforce when the car can be used, only for school, etc... maybe check the odometer to ensure the distance being travelled.

I said, "I didn't get a ticket, she did. I'm only here because she no longer drives my vehicles and she needed a ride." He smiled and said, "Fair enough."

The judge went pretty easy on her. I gave her back the use of my vehicles about 2 months later. I paid her fine but she paid me back in full prior to me letting her drive again.

That was about 12 years ago. Her driving record has been spotless since then.
KUDOS, ElkHunter!

I know that she'll have to appear before the judge. We'll see, but I plan to do just as you did. For the past few days, she's been driving me, and I've been critiquing her driving. She's not happy, but I think she's learning....those painful lessons....with consequences.

I installed a GPS tracking system on my teenagers car it's awesome . It alerts me with a text message if he is speeding I can also log on from anywhere and see where his car is. I was always extremely worried about my son speeding, but I felt like I had very little control. Now that I have AmericanGPSís tracking system installed, Iím notified via text message and e-mail whenever his speed exceeds 70 MPH. Leaving me much more relaxed. American gps 919-460-5995

Did you provide the car? Do you pay for the insurance? I had to buy my own car and pay for my own insurance when I was a teen... The former insures that I have a pretty slow car, the latter encourages good/safe driving and both teach great responsibility.

i know someone that killed a woman when they were your age, ran over her.
he has had a rough life. she had no life. the trick is not dodging the cops, the trick is slowing down.

Everyone gets speeding tickets. Why is it such a big deal?

I get 2-3 a year... I'd assume my kid would get around the same.
