This is not just another meaningless day or week created by some politician. As a lawyer, there is nothing more tragic than helping the family of a child or teen who has been seriously hurt in a car accident. And as of 2010 (the latest data available), motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens, accounting for more than one in three deaths in this age group, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Also, in 2009, eight teens ages 16 to 19 died every day from motor vehicle injuries.
I’m not sharing this information to scare already crazy parents. I want to help protect you and prevent teen driving car accidents, and this issue is sadly very real and very tragic. It is happening all around us.
