According to Allstate Insurance, car crashes caused by teenage drivers are the number one killer of teens in America today, with an estimated 5,000 teenage lives lost each year. This statistic means that one out of every 10 drivers involved in a fatal crash is between the age of 15 and 20.
October 21 to 28, 2018 is the 12th annual National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW). Established by congress in 2007, this year’s theme is “5 to drive”, and it encourages parents to discuss safe driving with their teens by teaching 5 things to remember while behind the wheel.
According to a recent survey, 89% of teens said that their parents have the biggest influence on how they drive.
