Earlier this month, the CDC released new information about teen drinking and driving in the United States. As we observe National Teen Driver Safety Week this week, our injury accident attorneys want to look at the latest information from the CDC regarding teenage drunk driving accidents.
According to the CDC, since 1991 there has been a 50% decrease in teen drinking and driving. While that is good news, there is more work to do.
The CDC is recommending that states, communities, pediatricians, parents, and teens all take action. We can fight the problem of teen drunk driving and work together to prevent future accidents and save lives. Together, we may make a difference and prevent future tragedies. Together, we may keep more young people from suffering the horrible injuries and losses that may result from teenage drunk driving accidents.
