Teen Driver Source: Tools for a Teen

Just one teen passenger doubles the risk a teen driver will get into a fatal crash; three or more passengers quadruples the risk.
The website is dedicated to reducing risky behaviors among teen drivers. It has resources for teens such as information on learning how to drive, several classroom activities available for download to inform teens on safe driving behaviors and statistics on crash information broken down by risky behaviors. There are several videos on driving safety and laws as well as links to upcoming traffic safety events.

The people behind are a team of researchers, educators, and communicators from the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute. This Teen Driver Safety Research team takes a multidisciplinary approach to study the causes of teen driver-related crashes and then provides research-based and evidence-informed information, tools, and other resources on this site to help prevent these crashes.
