  • Teen Motor Vehicle Safety

     

    Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens, accounting for more than one in three deaths in this age group.

    Data from the CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control shows that teens ages 15 to 19 are 5.4 times more likely to die and 3.2 times more likely to be hospitalized for injuries sustained in a motor vehicle crash.

    In Jefferson County alone, there were 123 teen injury cases involving motor vehicles last year. The Colorado Department of Transportation ranks Jefferson County as the third-worst county in the state when it comes to at-fault teen drivers.

    Following the Colorado Graduated Driver Licensing Laws can help teens prevent motor vehicle crashes.
