Inexperienced teen drivers more likely to cause fatal accidents

When teens in Wyoming get their driver's licenses, their excitement to hit the open road could end in death. Research conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety concluded that teen drivers without adult supervision and transporting only other teens produced fatal accidents 51 percent more often than other drivers. When researchers filtered data to look for speeding or night-time crashes, the death rates were even higher.

NHTSA data shows increase in large truck fatalities

Overall, the roads throughout Wyoming and the rest of the country are becoming safer. However, data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration suggests fatalities involving large trucks are on the rise. According to NHTSA figures, vehicle traffic fatalities decreased by nearly 2 percent in 2017. Fatal collisions with larger vehicles, on the other hand, spiked by nearly 10 percent over the prior year.
