How common are teen driver crashes in Ohio?

Ohio roads see a fair number of traffic accidents. And it is not at all uncommon for such accidents to involve teen drivers. Statistics point to Ohio seeing tens of thousands of teen-driver-involved crashes a year.

Specifically, it has been estimated that 135,882 motor vehicle accidents involving teen drivers occurred in the state between 2015 and 2017.

Teen driving crashes can come about in a range of ways. Sometimes, they are caused by factors outside of a teen driver’s control. Other times, they are the result of unsafe conduct by a teen driver, such as speeding, getting distracted behind the wheel or driving while tired or impaired.

Statistics point to accidents caused by fault on the part of a teen driver taking a pretty big toll here in Ohio. Between 2015 and 2017, nearly 42,000 people were injured in such crashes. Such accidents led to 285 fatalities over this period.

As this underscores, how safe teens drive here in Ohio can have major ramifications, not just for teens and their families, but for all kinds of people out on the roads.

So, what steps parents in the state take to make sure their young drivers are making safe driving a priority matters a great deal. Research indicates that being a good role model for driving safety and having rules for their teens on driving are among the things parents can do that can be very helpful on this front.

Do you have any recommendations for parents when it comes to teen driving safety?
