Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers. According to the CDC:
Young people ages 15-24 represent only 14% of the U.S. population. However, they account for 30% ($19 billion) of the total costs of motor vehicle injuries among males and 28% ($7 billion) of the total costs of motor vehicle injuries among females.
The State of Ohio has recently passed new rules on teen driving (effective July 1, 2015) which provide stricter limitations on newly licensed teen drivers.
