Teenage Driving

In every country in the world where cars are a common means of transportation, teenagers are disproportionately involved in motor vehicle crashes. The seriousness of this problem has been recognized for decades, and most public policies have had little impact on the problem. Newer approaches, such as graduated licensing systems, are being enacted to try to reduce teenage crashes and the deaths and injuries they cause.
