If you have a child, at some point he or she will become a teenager and learn how to drive. After that, they will want to borrow your car if they don’t have one of their own. You may think your kid is quite responsible, but sometimes the freedom a car gives them can be very intoxicating.

When your teen says he or she will be careful with the car, all you can do is hope. But sometimes they’re not so careful or they promise to be careful in order to get the keys for a potential joy ride.
