Teen Drivers Crash Most In First Month

PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — A new report by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety finds teen drivers are 50 percent more likely to crash in their first month of unsupervised driving than they are after a full year of experience.

Rose Ryan-Douglas and Paul Rasmussen are joined on the KDKA Afternoon News by Dan Bleier, spokesman for the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, to discuss why the percentage is so high, and why the transition to unsupervised driving can be so dangerous for teen drivers.
