 Teen Traffic Safety

  • In the past 10 years, the Montana Graduated Drivers Licensing program has helped reduce teen crash rates by 35%.
  • Despite this progress, Montana still has the worst teen fatality rate involving motor vehicle crashes in the Nation, often due to preventable causes.
  • Continued efforts are needed to prevent motor vehicle crashes among teens including increasing seat belt use and reducing impaired and distracted driving.
