With school back in session, many teens are hitting the roads to go to and from classes and extracurricular activities. Unfortunately, this can mean increased risk for pedestrians and motorists who are sharing byways. While they have a right to be on the roads, teens who drive disproportionately put others at risk by speeding, distracted driving, negligence, and driving under the influence.
Each year, the Ohio Department of Transportation releases an annual publication, Ohio Traffic Crash Facts, which reports on crashes by age group across the state. In 2015, the report shows that drivers aged 20 and under were involved in over 70,000 crashes in Ohio. Of those drivers aged 16-20, over two-thirds (67 percent) were found to be in error, making them one of the most dangerous subgroups of Ohio drivers.
