Teen Driving Experts at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Support New Recommendations From the New Jersey Teen Driver Study Commission
Date:3/26/2008

PHILADELPHIA, March 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Researchers at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) support the comprehensive, evidence-based recommendations released today by the New Jersey Teen Driver Study Commission. If adopted into policy, these recommendations will help to reduce the number one killer of teens: motor vehicle crash injury.

"The commission's recommendations are right in line with the most current research in the field of teen driving," said Flaura Winston, M.D., Ph.D., Co-Scientific Director of CHOP's Center for Injury Research and Prevention and Principal Investigator of the hospital's Young Driver Research Initiative. "The research we are conducting with State Farm supports many of the same conclusions concerning graduated driver licensing [GDL], driver education and training, and parents' crucial role in modeling, teaching and monitoring their teens' driving."

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia supports New Jersey in its efforts to lead the charge in setting policies that will reduce the number one killer of teens: crashes.

CHOP researchers recommend other states, including Pennsylvania, adapt their approach to GDL and driver education from New Jersey Commission's recommendations.

In particular, these recommendations have already proven effective in other states. No state however has adopted all of these recommendations:

Nighttime restrictions:

-- Placing a limit on unsupervised driving at night will remove teen drivers from proven dangerous situations. More than half of all fatal nighttime crashes involving teens occur from 9 p.m. to midnight.

Passenger restrictions:

-- Limiting the number of passengers under age 18 will remove teen drivers from proven dangerous situations. Fatal crash risk increases exponentially with each additional teen passenger.

Primary seat belt laws:

-- Closing loopholes in restraint laws to require seat belt us
