Parents are concerned about protecting their teens health and safety. But not everyone realizes that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens. In 2008, more than 3,400 teens aged 15–19 were killed and almost 350,000 were treated in emergency departments for injuries suffered in motor-vehicle crashes (CDC).
