A MINUTE OF HEALTH WITH CDC
Staying Safe Behind the Wheel
National Teen Driver Safety Week — October 19–25, 2008
October 16, 2008
This program is presented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. CDC — safer, healthier people.
Teenagers are indestructible — or so they think. Nowhere is this more evident than behind the wheel of a car. In 2006, over 4100 teenagers aged 16–19 died as a result of a motor-vehicle crash and almost 400,000 were treated for injuries. States with graduated driver licensing, in which young drivers earn more privileges as they gain more experience, have cut motor-vehicle related deaths and injuries involving teens by as much as 38 percent. But parents still have the most influence over their child’s driving habits. Parents - teach your teenagers that irresponsible driving behavior can have deadly consequences.
