Teen Car Accident Statistics in Texas: Prevention and Protection

June 4, 2018

It has been reported by AAA Foundation for Safety that teen driving accidents increase significantly from June 1st – Labor Day. Events such as graduation and summer break festivities all play a factor in the number of teen car accidents, but statistics indicate that distracted driving and more teenagers in the car at one time are the primary cause of these accidents.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identified specific risk groups based on statistical data from sources, including the Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System (WISQARS). Data gathered and compiled from car crashes in 2016 shows the highest risk groups.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 2,082 teen drivers were involved in accidents in 2016 that resulted in a fatality.
