Fatal auto accidents happen fast, especially car crashes involving teenagers. But what if there was a way to save lives? What if something could be done to save 66 lives in Ohio, 34 in Pennsylvania and 21 in West Virginia each year? Sound far fetched? It’s not as difficult as you might think. According to the National Safety Council, if each state adopted seven simple rules for teenage drivers, they could save that many lives each year in all three states. Nationwide, such rule changes would result in more than 2,000 lives saved every year.

Teenagers literally think differently. Increasing scientific evidence has found that teens’ brains are physically different from adults and still developing. That’s why teenagers often do things that make people think, “What were they thinking?”
That’s why the National Safety Council supports states adopting seven specific rules for teenage drivers aimed at reducing the number of auto accidents. These rules include states waiting until drivers are 16 years old to issue a learner’s permit and 16½ years old to issue an intermediate license.
