DID YOU KNOW?
- In one year in the U.S. almost 3,500 teenagers died in motor vehicle accidents;
- Over half of the teen auto accident fatalities were not wearing their seat belts
- Many of these accident (about 40 %) occurred in the night time and early morning hours and many involved distracted driving from cell phone use and/or other teens in the vehicle.
As a car accident lawyer, I have seen my share of traffic injury and fatality incidents involving teenagers. I think more education and public service information like this is a positive way we can all try to reduce these frightening statistics.
