Teen Deaths On The Rise Nationally
(WIBX) – More young drivers are dying on America’s roads. In a report on Teenage Driver Fatalities prepared by Allan Williams for the Governors’ Highway Safety Association, deaths among 16-to-17 year olds rose ten percent during the first six months of 2011 compared to the year before.
New York, however, has had a slight decline from four deaths during the first half of 2010 to one in 2011.
But even one death is too many. Jonathan Adkins of the GHSA says teens looking for ways to improve can go online to sharpen their driving skills. Resources for parents can be found there as well.
