Georgia Mom Develops Special Teen Driving Magnet

There is no easy cure for teenage traffic deaths and injuries, but Susan Kessler believes she has at least come up with a way to help limit the carnage: When a new driver gets behind the wheel, just slap a temporary warning sign on the car. Here, Kessler family friend Sheila Burns passes the keys to her granddaughter, Kayla.

Kessler has developed signs for teens with learner permits and first-year licenses. They are attached magnetically to the car's sheet metal and display the words "Caution Newly Licensed." Here, Kessler's son Donnie poses next to the car he drives with the sign attached.

It's not hard to imagine the signs being a nightmare to teens obsessed with what their peers think. But, Kessler, a Kennesaw, Ga., mother of six, says the real horror is out on the highway: thousands of young people killed and injured in traffics every year. Here, Kessler's son Donnie and his friend Kayla stand next to the family car with the safe driving magnet attached.

More than 15,000 of people have ordered the signs since Kessler and a group of other moms introduced them four years ago. Here, Kessler family friend Sheila Burns passes the keys to her granddaughter, Kayla.
