Risk for teen drivers

Age

Mile for mile, teenagers are involved in three times as many fatal crashes as all other drivers.

Seat Belt Use

In 2008, more than half of the teens killed in motor vehicle crashes were not wearing their seat belt.

Cell Phone Use

Using a cell phone while driving is a serious risk for teen drivers, forcing them to take their eyes off the road and at least one hand off the steering wheel.

Nighttime Driving

Four out of every teen crash deaths occur at night.

Passengers

Teen drivers with two or more teen passengers increase the chance of a fatal crash by five times.

Underage Drinking

Although the legal drinking age in the United State is 21, each year thousands of teens are killed or injured in traffic crashes as a result of underage drinking.
