Claims News Service, Nov. 7, 10:34 a.m. EST — The Allstate Foundation has released a comprehensive report on teen driving, featuring an in-depth study of teen attitudes complemented by recent discoveries from adolescent-development experts. The debut of the report, “Chronic: A Report on the State of Teen Driving,” also marks the Foundation’s launch of a new multi-year program addressing teen motor-vehicle crashes.

The report notes that, despite improvements in roadways, safer cars, and restrictive driving laws, the number of teen deaths attributed to motor-vehicle crashes has remained consistent at nearly 6,000 fatalities per year for the past 10 years. In addition, each year, more than 300,000 teens are injured as a result of a teen crash. Among 16-year-old drivers, the leading cause of fatal crashes is driver error (77 percent), followed by speeding (38 percent) and alcohol (less than 25 percent).
