CDC: Tighten teens' nighttime driving restrictions
from HealthDay News
Getting U.S. teens out of the driver's seat before midnight would reduce their risk of fatal crashes, federal health officials said Thursday in a new report. One-third of fatal teen car crashes occur at night, with 57 percent of those taking place before 12 a.m., according to new statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But while 49 states restrict nighttime driving as part of a graduated licensing program, 23 prohibit driving only after midnight — well past the time most teens are off the road, the CDC reported.
