Know the Facts

Why all the hype? Is it really that big a problem? Yes, it is…

 

In the United States, teenagers drive less than all but the oldest people, but their numbers of crashes and crash deaths are disproportionately high.1 In the United States, the fatal crash rate per mile driven for 16-19 year-olds is nearly 3 times the rate for drivers ages 20 and over. Risk is highest at ages 16-17. In fact, the fatal crash rate per mile driven is nearly twice as high for 16-17 year-olds as it is for 18-19 year-olds.

So yes, it’s a really big problem. What’s contributing to this ongoing epidemic? Here are the facts.
