Teenage Drivers



Teenage drivers are involved in four times as many fatal crashes than any other age group. On average, six thousand teens are killed each year in crashes that often involve alcohol. Neil Bernstein, adolescent psychologist, says teens are often reckless and think they are invulnerable. Dr. Allan Williams, Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says laws establishing night time curfews, lowering the legal blood alcohol content, and raising driving age are helpful. He also says driving privileges should be phased in through graduated driver's licenses. This video is from the Insurance Information Institute.
