Thirty-five teens died in car crashes in New Hampshire from 2006 through 2010. A new study estimates 14 of them would not have died because they wouldn't have been in crashes if the state had made it harder for teens to get driver’s licenses.
That’s the conclusion of a new study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a research group funded by the insurance industry.
The institute looked at death rates nationwide. Then, it looked at how hard it is for a teen to get a license in each state.
The analysis covered 1996 – 2007.
