Teen Driving Statistics

Is your teen distracted on the road?

    texting “regularly” while driving.
  • Kids who start drinking young are seven times more likely to be in an alcohol-related crash.
  • Car crashes are the #1 killer of teens, taking about 3,000 young lives every year.
  • Teen alcohol use kills about 6,000 people each year, more than all illegal drug deaths combined.
  • Leading experts agree that parents who get involved with their teen’s driving can help prevent a tragic crash.

Tips To Consider

  1. To those drivers under 25 years old: Act wiser when it comes to drinking and driving because you could become a deadly statistic.
  2. Parents: Try to spend at least 35 hours practicing your teen’s driving skills over a 6 month period before they’re on
    the road alone.
  3. To those drivers over 25: Be as cautious a driver as you were when you first started (and hopefully smarter).
    No matter how long you’ve been driving, an accident can happen to anyone!
  4. Parents and teens: Think twice before answering a text while driving. Accidents happen in mere seconds, so think twice before
    you pick up the phone.
  5. Having quick reactions won’t always prevent you from having an accident. Spotting and responding to problems ahead of
    time will. Drive safely wisely.
