87 percent of fatal crashes involving new drivers are caused by distractions from cell phones, iPods, loud music, putting on makeup, eating and even friends.

19 percent of US fatalities are related to young driver crashes involving youth between the ages of 15 and 20.

 

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, in the United States, the fatal crash rate per mile driven for 16-19 year-olds is nearly 3 times the rate for drivers ages 20 and over.
