One of the most noteworthy moments in a teenager’s life is earning a driver’s license, but it’s not without serious risks. In 2013, more than 2,000 teens, aged 16 to 19, were killed in motor vehicle crashes-that’s six teens every day. And for every teen who dies, about 125 teens are treated in emergency departments for injuries suffered in motor vehicle crashes. States that have introduced primary seatbelt laws have helped reduce serious crash-related injuries and deaths by about half.
