Driving Laws Every Young Driver Must Know

Why Most Young Adults are Bad Drivers: Lesson 1

Driving Risks For Young Adults: The Numbers Speak

  • Young adult drivers can be shocked at how much insurance will cost, even if they have a good driving record so far.
  • Unfortunately, the insurance companies have a point.
  • According to the Centers for Disease Control, 2,163 teens in the United States ages 16–19 were killed in 2013.
  • Almost 250,000 more ended up in emergency rooms after wrecks. That means that six people ages 16–19 died every day in 2013 from being hurt in car crashes!
  • According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the risk of motor vehicle crashes is higher among 16-19-year-olds than in any other age group. In fact, drivers ages 16 to 19 are almost three times more likely than drivers aged 20 and older to be in a crash where someone dies.
