Teen Drivers

Posted: Updated:

It's not a good statistic, but the numbers don't lie. Teen drivers are one of Ohio's most at risk groups when it come to being involved in a traffic crash.

From 2010 to 2012, teen drivers were at fault in more that 100 thousand crashes resulting in more than 44 thousand injuries and 299 deaths. Teen drivers were at fault in 10% of all fatal crashes during that same time period.

Police say the stats more than ever stress sound decision making and knowledge of the road. Lt. Brant Zemelka also stresses making sure we're buckled up and avoid being a distracted driver.
