State Farm and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia recently released a study finding children between the ages of 12 to 16 are more likely to die in a car accident. A number of factors influence this result including young driver inexperience behind the wheel, riding on a high speed road, and not wearing a seat belt. In addition, young drivers often carry more teens in their cars, contributing to the higher number of deaths in car accidents. The researchers believe that auto accident deaths can be reduced by educating teens about the importance of wearing seat belts. If teens develop this habit at an early age, they may reduce the risk of fatal injury in motor vehicle accidents. For more information
