Safe Driving

Every day, thousands of Americans are involved in motor vehicle crashes that result in injury or death. In fact, motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death in the U.S. At the CDC Injury Center, we research the best ways to prevent injuries, applying science for real-world solutions to keep people safe, healthy, and productive. We focus on improving car seat & booster seat and seat belt use, reducing impaired driving, and helping groups at risk: child passengers and teen drivers.

Assets such as skills, relationships, and opportunities can help teens overcome challenges, successfully transition into adulthood, and reduce problem behavior. When it comes to drunk driving or riding with a drinking driver, a new CDC study reveals that parental engagement is the most important asset, consistently making a positive impact on teens’ choices, even beyond teenage years into young adulthood.
