CDC’s resources to keep teen drivers safe

Nationwide, motor vehicle crashes are the second leading cause of death for U.S. teens with almost 2,400 teens aged 13–19 losing their lives in car crashes in 2019. Motor vehicle crashes are preventable, and parents can make a big difference in keeping teen drivers safe.
