24/7WallStreet.com conducts an annual teen driver study that measures multiple metrics to find the best and worst states for teen drivers.
Metrics for ranking the best and worst states for teen drivers are:
• Number of teen driver fatalities per 10,000 licensed teen drivers
• Breath of Graduated Driving License (GDL) laws
• Average annual insurance costs for teen drivers
• Teen drinking and driving rates
• Teen emailing/texting and driving rates
• Seat belt use for 18-year-old to 44-year-olds
In 2022, New York landed in the #1 position as the safest state for teen drivers. At the other end of the spectrum, Wyoming ranked #50, the bottom of the barrel.
Georgia ranked #27, meaning our state has definite room for improvement.
