A St Louis car accident attorney discusses some of the major risks associated with teen motorists.

Traffic accidents are the leading cause of death for teens between 15 and 19 years old. Although teens are often killed in collisions caused by other motorists (or other parties), it’s also common for teen motorists to present a risk to themselves, particularly if or when they engage in the following risky behaviors:

  1. Drunk driving – Close to 1 in 3 teen drivers killed in traffic accidents had alcohol in their systems at the time of the crash.
  2. Distracted driving – About 11 percent of the deadly crashes caused by teen motorists involve distracted drivers.
  3. Speeding – Speeding is a factor in about 42 percent of the deadly crashes caused by teen drivers.
