IIHS Study Finds Teen Girl Drivers Take More Risks than Than Teen Boys

According to an April 25 ABC news report by Ben Eisler, a new study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that 16-year old drivers get in more accidents than any other age group. Only one-third of teens surveyed considered talking on the phone dangerous while driving.

Overall, girls were 15 percent more likely to engage in these risky behaviors than boys. Only two to three percent of teens surveyed admitted to drunk driving.
