There’s nothing more tragic than losing a son or daughter to a preventable driving accident.

Here’s some sobering statistics about teen driving:

  • 16-year-olds have higher crash rates than drivers of any other age
  • 56% of teens said they talk on the phone while driving
  • Statistics show that 16 and 17-year-old driver death rates increase with each additional passenger
  • Only 44% of teens said they would definitely speak up if someone were driving in a way that scared them
  • Teen drivers with involved parents are twice as likely to wear seat belts
  • More than 40% of teen auto deaths occur between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.
  • Talking on a cell phone can double the likelihood of an accident as well as slow a young driver’s reaction time down to that of a 70-year-old
  • 1 in 5 of 16-year-old drivers has an accident within their first year of driving
  • 56% of teenagers rely on their parents to learn how to drive
  • Crash risk for teens increase incrementally with each mile per hour over the speed limit
