Teen drivers are at increased risk due to inexperience behind the wheel and risk-taking behaviors such as speeding, impaired and distracted driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, vehicle crashes are still the number one cause of death among youth ages 15 to 20.
Coordination of the Mock Crash program is made possible through a Safe Communities grant funded by U.S. Department of Transportation and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
