Automobile crashes are the #1 killer of our kids nationwide. Of all the fatal crashes where a teen was killed 60% involved alcohol. In the first year of driving a sober teen is 10 times more likely to have an accident than a driver with just 2 years of driving experience. A teenage male driver who has been drinking is 18 times more likely to crash than a non drinking teenage male. A female teen is 54 times more likely to have a crash than a non drinking female teen. Alcohol is the first drug used by our youth and unfortunately has the most deadly affects on driving ability. 80% of high school students have tried alcohol. 40% of high school students drink given the opportunity. If you care about your kids and their friends you can help prevent some of this carnage.
