Fatal Crashes Involving Teen Drivers Down 55% Since 2004

The Washington Post reports that the number of teen drivers involved in fatal car crashes “dropped by more than half over the past decade as vehicles became safer and more young people received restricted licenses, a report finds.” The number of drivers ages 16 to 19 who were involved in fatal crashes “in 2013 fell by 55 percent, to 2,568, down from 5,724 in 2004, according the CDC report.” Ruth Shults, the study’s lead author and an injury prevention researcher at the CDC, said, “Many factors are probably at play, but there is wide agreement the graduated-licensing programs are an important contributor to the decline in fatal crashes.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
