Teen Drivers & GDL Systems: New Resources & Data
Learning to drive is often considered a rite of passage for teenagers. But with the reward of being a new driver comes real risk. Car crashes are the leading cause of death for teens in the United States, taking the lives of eight teens a day. CDC’s Injury Center is committed to preventing teen crashes and related deaths and injuries.
During National Teen Driver Safety Week, CDC released new data and several tools and resources for partners and state and local injury programs, including:
- A new study on crashes among teen drivers, scheduled for publication in MMWR;
- "Parents Are The Key,” a communications campaign for parents of teen drivers on how to keep their teens safe while learning to drive; and
- "Policy IMPACT: Teen Driver Safety,” an issue brief that focuses on teen driver safety and the proven steps that can help save young drivers’ lives. It is one in a series of at-a-glance policy issue briefs that NCIPC will release focusing on unintentional injury topics and key recommendations.
