The Teen Driver Safety team at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at CHOP has published several research reports. These reports describe findings from our studies and include teen driver statistics and actionable steps teen driver safety advocates, educators, and policymakers can take to help reduce crash rates involving teens behind the wheel.
These teenage driving statistics reports include:
- Miles to go: Focusing on Risks for Teen Driver Safety (2013), the Center's third report on teenage driving statistics, focuses on risky behaviors associated with teen driver crashes. It also shares the progress made in reducing teen driver-related crashes since 2005 and direction for the development of strategies to further drive down the number of people killed in these crashes each year.
- Driving Through the Eyes of Teens, A Closer Look (2009), a summary of seven CIRP research studies published in 2008-2009 that stress the important role parents play in helping their teens become safe drivers.The teenage driving statistics found in the report also offer recommendations for advocacy to improve teen driver safety policy.
