Teens Need Guidance Beyond Parents While Learning To Drive

The number of teen drivers involved in fatal crashes has been halved over the past decade, but traffic collisions still remain the top cause of death for teenagers.


But Teens Still Have High Crash Rates, Pose Danger To Others

Teen drivers are far less likely to be involved in fatal car accidents today than at any other point over the past two decades.


GM's Teen Driver Program Turns On Safety Features, Records Data

For teens, a driver's license can represent freedom. For parents, it can represent fear. Now there's a way parents can alleviate some of their worries and monitor their teen drivers.


Cell-Phone Use And Passengers Are Top Crash Factors, Says AAA

Distracted driving is a far more significant cause of teen-driving accidents than previously realized, according to new research.


AAA research finds modest gains, but knowledge rates still 'quite low'

At a time when fewer students are participating in driver's education, a new study reaffirms the value of such classes.


Many used cars don't contain criticial safety features that could keep kids safer

Teen drivers are the most vulnerable motorists on the road. They take unnecessary risks. They're inexperienced. They're more likely to sit behind the wheel of used cars that don't contain the latest safety technology.


Hawaii is also quite safe, South Dakota is not

Teen drivers in New York are safer than teens in any other state, according to a new study from Wallethub.


New study says economic crunch is primarily to blame for decline in teen driving

Teens are driving less. That much, we know already. We've watched the auto industry gnash its collective teeth over the downward trend in Generation Y driving for the better part of a year.

Parents have new reason to breathe a sigh of relief when it comes to the safety of their teen drivers, and they have new reason to be frightened.


Parents need to talk to their teen drivers about risks before it's too late

On a warm Tuesday evening last July, a car full of teens left a fireworks show in suburban Detroit and headed out for a ride.


Police were alerted when someone saw the car driving on a flat tire

One police officer said it was the worst accident he's ever witnessed

A horrific Memorial Day car crash left five teenagers dead and a field of debris scattered across the road.


Key Reason: Sober or not, teens are driving fewer miles

Drunk driving among American teenagers has sharply declined over the past two decades, according to the Centers For Disease Control.


Hey, Mom and Dad. The next time you're in the car, take a look at that sweet, smiling face in your rearview mirror. Notice how those young, innocent eyes are soaking up every red light you run, every time you don't use a turn signal, every phone call you take, every text you send and every breath you take (every move you make)?


Study: Approximately 160 people could be killed on nation's roads on holiday

The Fourth of July: Synonymous with fireworks displays, leisurely barbecues and teen death. Sadly, that last topic has become an annual staple of the holiday weekend.


Numbers rise for 16 and 17-year-olds even as overall number of traffic fatalities declines

The number of teen drivers dying behind the wheel is on pace to increase for the first time in more than eight years, according to a study released Thursday.


Admittedly, the U.S. doesn't offer the world's greatest driving instruction. By and large, young drivers are forced to rely on their parents to teach them how to handle themselves behind the wheel, which perpetuates a painful cycle of trans-generational bad habits.


Despite plenty of academic research demonstrating that texting while driving can be just as dangerous as drinking and driving, a new poll shows that most teens simply don't think that's the case. State Farm recently sponsored a poll conducted by Harris Interactive in which 14-to-17 year-olds were asked whether they thought they would die one day if they regularly text and drive. Only 35 percent of those asked strongly agreed with that statement. Compare that figure with the 55 percent of teens w
