WASHINGTON (WKOW) –The AAA Foundation
for Traffic Safety study released Tuesday found teens are more likely to die behind the wheel when they have other
teens in the car.
Researchers found a 16-or 17-year-old driver was 44-percent more likely to die in a
crash, per mile driven, with one passenger under 21-years-old. That's compared to driving alone.
The study found deadly crash risk doubled with two or more passengers
under 21 and no older adults present. Researchers say if teens drive with at least one person 35 or older,
the teen driver's risk of death went down more than 60-percent
