New York - Parents can track the whereabouts of teenage drivers with the help of a global positioning system about to undergo testing by New York-based AIG Auto Insurance.

Besides telling parents the location of the car, the GPS devices send e-mail or text messages to parents if the driver ventures beyond predetermined geographic boundaries or exceeds speed limits.

Tests are slated for Arizona, Illinois, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Washington, the company says.

AIG Auto Insurance has teamed with technology provider MobileTeenGPS in the project, which has been dubbed the AIG Teen GPS Program.
