Teenage driving accident rate drops

Leon Fooksman, John Maines and Chris Kahn of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel used state and federal data to show that "in Florida, the rate of car crashes for drivers between ages 15 and 19 dropped 23 percent from 1996 to 2003, the last year of available statistics. The crash rate has declined for everyone, but it's down twice as much for teens as any other age group." While fatal accidents involving teenage drivers grab headlines, young drivers in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties all had fewer accidents during the seven years studied.
