Teen Passenger Safety: How Safe Are They As Passengers?

A recent report released by the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and State Farm Insurance contained important information about teen passengers. While most teen driving studies focus on teen drivers, this report was different in that it looked specifically at teen passenger safety.

Teen Passenger Safety Report is Encouraging

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and State Farm found that:

• More than half of teen passengers report always buckling up in 2011.
• Risky behaviors among teen passengers decreased from 2008 to 2011.
• Fewer teen passengers are traveling in cars with teen drivers who have been drinking.
• 30% fewer teen passengers were killed in crashes involving a teen driver in 2011.

We hope that the trends identified in the report continue and that fewer accidents, injuries, and fatalities occur in the future. However, for now car crashes remain a leading cause of death among U.S. teenagers. If your child has died in a crash then we extend our sincere condolences and we encourage you to contact an experienced accidental death lawyer for more information about your family’s legal rights.
