Wyoming Ranked The Worst State For Teen Drivers
Wyoming has once again scored high on a national state rating, but this time, it's definitely not a good thing. Of all fifty states, Wyoming hit darn near the bottom of the barrel, making us one the worst states in the union for teen drivers according to a recent study conducted by real estate website, WalletHub.
As alarming as it may be, motor-vehicle accidents continue to be the leading cause of death among people between the ages of 16 and 19, which coincidentally is also the age group with the highest risk of crashes.
Wyoming ranked dead last in more than one category, including Most Teen Driver Fatalities per Teen Population and Safety Conditions Rank. Those combined with other extremely low rankings landed the Cowboy State 49th overall, with only South Dakota scoring lower.
To add more fuel to the fire, although summer is the season that adds the most teen drivers, an average 220 teens are killed in car accidents each month. Maybe it's time to make some changes.
