“Teen Crashes: Everyone is at Risk” is available from the American Automobile Association.

Accidents involving teenage drivers are much more likely to be fatal to people other than the teen driver, including passengers, people in other cars, and pedestrians, concludes a report by the American Automobile Association.

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety in Washington studied crash data from a 10-year period and found that teenage drivers accounted for slightly more than one-third of the crashes in which they were involved. Between 1995 and 2004, accidents involving 15- to 17-year-old drivers killed 30,917 drivers nationwide, of which 11,177, or 36.2 percent, were the teenage drivers themselves.
