National Teen Driving Report Finds Safety Gains for Teen Passengers

A new report on teen driver safety released today by The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and State Farm® shows encouraging trends among teen passengers. In 2011 more than half of teen passengers (54 percent) reported "always" buckling up. From 2008 to 2011, risky behaviors of teen passengers (ages 15 to 19 years) declined: the number of teen passengers killed in crashes not wearing seat belts decreased by 23 percent; the number of teen passengers driven by a peer who had been drinking declined by 14 percent; and 30 percent fewer teen passengers were killed in crashes involving a teen driver.
