    Just a quick comparison of the states shows that the eastern “good” states all are heavily populated and have mass transit. On the other hand, Wyoming is most rural and kids will drive a lot more miles. How about a comparison based on the miles driven.

      Some of these states with such a good safety record are tiny like Rhode Island and Massachusetts. I wonder how many teenagers living in DC even have a car. Arkansas has a lot of bad two lane roads which are very winding. Wyoming as a lot of mountainous territory. I am with you Sandman. Compare miles driven and how long the teenagers are on the road. I wonder how many accidents were caused by texting while driving.

    A couple of years ago, Wyoming started with a graduated drivers license. While the state is still #1 in teen deaths, has it decreased since the new license was implemented? That would be nice to know. Agree with sandman, that is a comparison I would like to see as well. Even in Cheyenne where I live people live out in the county and may have to drive 20 to 30 miles one way to get to work or school.
