Teen drivers in Chicago and Washington, D.C. put people at risk in summer

Teenage drivers kill thousands of people every year. For every mile driven by an adult, a teenager driver 16 to 19 years old is four times more likely to get into a car accident, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And while any time of year can be dangerous on the road, teens are more likely to be involved in an auto accident in the summer. A recent study of accident statistics discovered that more deadly auto accidents involving teenage drivers happen between Memorial Day and Labor Day than any other time of year.
