AAA Says Teen Drivers Are Three Times Likely As Adults To Be Involved In Deadly Crash

LINCOLN- According to new research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety new teen drivers 16-17 years old are three times as likely as adults to be involved in a deadly crash.

The finding comes as the “100 Deadliest Days” begin, the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day when the average number of deadly teen driver crashes climbs 15 percent compared to the rest of the year.

To keep roads safer this summer, AAA encourages parents to have conversations with their teens early and often about distraction and speeding, teach by example and minimize risky behavior when driving and make a parent-teen driving agreement that sets family rules for teen drivers.
