Does he invoke a classic Lateral Puzzle?

Does he want her to slow down? pay more attention? use her mirrors more? or just drive more carefully in general?

Did he assume she knew nothing about cars and said that if she goes over a certain number of miles per hour the car would explode?
Or did he say that the sat nav records her speed and sends it back to be collated somewhere and give her a fine for going over the speed limit x number of times? Hmm, how can we be sure that it doesn't???

Would it make sense for the man himself to drive more carefully for the same reason that he persuaded his wife to drive more carefully?
For a teenage girl to drive more carefully for the same reason? For a teenage boy to drive more carefully for the same reason?
Did she start driving more carefully in order to reduce the risk that she would have an accident?
In order to be perceived as the sort of person who drives carefully?

Did it also motivate her to do other things more safely? look both ways before crossing the road? Wear a seatbelt when in the passenger seat? make sure the electrical appliances in her house were properly earthed? wear a helmet when skydiving?

If she dies, people will find out how old she is from her obituary?

Does it have to do with something potentially embarrassing that would happen if she... had an accident? ...got pulled over?

If so, does the embarassing thing have to do with... her driver's license? ...insurance? ...registration? ...her appearance? If so... clothing? ...hair? ...face?

If not embarrassing, something... costly? ...

Would her age be listed in a newspaper article about the accident?

Noel,

Would her age be listed in a newspaper article about the accident?

Yes. He advised his wife that newspaper accident reports always listed the age of the driver. This was a powerful incentive for her to drive more carefully.
