The National Young Driver Survey, conducted by State Farm and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, examined teens’ attitudes on 25 risky driving situations which provided important insight into perceived crash contributors. This research report discusses several findings, including:

  • Teens don’t consider themselves inexperienced drivers
  • Parents play a crucial role in teen driving safety
  • Limiting primary access to vehicles during the first 6 to 12 months of driving is important
  • Unlicensed teen drivers engage in more unsafe driving behaviors than licensed teen drivers
