Teen Driving Accident Information

The National Safety Council highlights the 100 deadliest days for teen drivers as a way to raise awareness about teen driving accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2012, nearly 1,000 people were fatally injured in motor vehicle crashes . More than half of the victims were teenagers.

During summer time, teens are much more likely to be on the road whether it is simply to head to the beach or to get to their summer job.

Additionally, during this time period, teens are much more likely to be riding in a car with more passengers. The Centers for Disease Control & Preventions statistics on teen driving accidents reveal that the greater the number of passengers, the greater the risk of being involved in a crash.

Recently, the Automobile Association of America (AAA), revealed that distracted driving is behind approximately 58 percent of moderate to severe teen accidents. Texting and driving is believed to be on the rise among teen drivers.

Parents should take this time to discuss safe driving habits with their teens as well as how they can protect themselves when another teen is behind the wheel. Wearing your seatbelt, never getting in a vehicle when a driver is under the influence, and avoiding distractions are all ways that teens can protect themselves.
