The Centers for Disease Control has analyzed many different data points in order to determine where teens are most likely to get involved in crashes. According to their research, vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for teenagers in the United States. The good news is that the majority of teen motor vehicle accidents are completely preventable.
Teen drivers represent the largest demographic group responsible for hundreds of thousands of collisions and thousands of fatalities in the United States every year. Legislation exists in all U.S. states to help protect drivers by restricting high-risk driver-passenger ratios, driving after dark and on major highways, and other conditions that are known to increase risk for teens.
