Many people have questions about their family’s auto insurance and teen drivers. And with good cause:

  • According to statistics (gathered by dosomething.org) 33% of deaths among 13 to 19-year-olds in 2010 occurred in motor vehicle crashes.
  • 16-year-olds have higher crash rates than drivers of any other age.
  • 56% of teens said they talk on the phone while driving.
  • Talking on the cell phone can double the likelihood of an accident as well as slow a young driver’s reaction time down to that of a 70-year-old.
  • 1 in 5 of 16-year-old drivers has and accident within their first year of driving.
  • Crash risk for teens increase incrementally with each mile per hour over the speed limit.
