16 year olds having fewer fatal crashes

A nationwide study finding that strong driver’s license laws have led to fewer fatal crashes among 16-year-olds.  Many states require young drivers to get extensive experience, including driving with an adult, before getting a full license.  The catch: those laws only apply to those younger than 18. The new study suggests some teens are just putting off getting a license until they turn 18 — meaning they have little experience and higher odds for a deadly crash.

The results appear in Wednesday’s Journal of the American Medical Association.   http://old.news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110914/ap_on_he_me/us_med_young_drivers_crashes
