AAA Study: Teen drivers more at risk for fatal crash when accompanied by a passenger
A new study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety finds an increase in the number of teens being involved in fatal car crashes when teens have passengers in the car. Florida AAA traffic safety culture director Michele Harris says this study should encourage parents to talk to their teens about their safety behind the wheel.
Harris says AAA has a parent-teen driving agreement that gives parents and teens the opportunity to discuss a safe compromise when their teens are behind the wheel.
