Each year, more than 3,000 young drivers are killed1 and nearly 450,000 are injured2 in motor vehicle crashes, making car accidents the number one killer of teens in the nation3.
Discussing safe driving habits with your young driver can help prevent your teen from becoming a statistic. Following the Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) laws in your state are just one way you can help your teen be a safer, more aware driver. GDL laws were created to help teen drivers gradually gain skills and experience behind the wheel before earning full driving privileges. Research has shown these laws can reduce crash rates among new teen drivers by 43%4.
Along with the Transportation Reauthorization laws that provide incentives to states that implement GDL laws, Allstate is focused on encouraging everyone to adopt these teen driving safety standards.
