Medical, Insurance, Automotive and Safety Groups Call on Congress to Make This the "Last Deadly Summer for Teens" by Swiftly Passing Federal Teen Driving Safety Bill
Date:6/3/2009

Motor vehicle crashes are #1 killer of nation's teens; During summer months a disproportionate number of teens die in crashes.

WASHINGTON, June 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- During this high school graduation season and at the start of the most dangerous road-travel season for teens on the nation's highways, a powerful coalition of medical, consumer, public health, safety, automotive, and insurance organizations delivered a letter today to every member of the U.S. House of Representatives urging quick passage of bi-partisan legislation (HR 1895) that would encourage all states to swiftly and uniformly adopt proven-effective model traffic safety laws to combat the number one cause of death and disabling injury of teens -- highway crashes.

GDL laws for novice teen drivers vary widely from state to state, which has resulted in an uneven patchwork of strong and weak state GDL laws with dangerous gaps th
