Teen Accident Study Has Surprises for New York Car Accident Attorneys

Contrary to what many believe, pickup trucks may not necessarily be the safest vehicles for teenage motorists, and teen motorists traveling with just one person in the car are not at a lower risk of an accident than those with more teen passengers in the car. That information comes via a new study conducted by researchers at the University Of Texas.

Decline in Teen Accident Deaths Being Attributed to Economy

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there has been a decline in the number of fatal accidents involving teen drivers. Not surprisingly to New York car accident attorneys, the agency is attributing this decline to the sluggish economy. There was especially good news for parents of teen motorists in New York. According to the CDC study, New York is one of the safest states for teen motorists, with only 10 out of every 100,000 teen drivers here involved in fatal accidents.
