"Even the best States can do better", says Anne McCartt, senior Vice President for research at IIHS. "There is room for improvement in all areas, and States could see claims immediate reduction in fatal crashes and collision, once regulations are in place to strengthen."

States with the toughest constraints the sharpest decline in teen of fatalities compared to those with less restrictive policy signed the IIHS reported. The Institute isolated five specific policies which seem to help:

Later driving age, 17 in New Jersey;They allow later age 16 in district of Columbia, New York, Massachusetts, Delaware, and five other States;At least 65 hours of supervised driving in Pennsylvania;Night driving ban in Idaho, South Carolina; AndA ban teen passengers in 15 States and Washington, D.C.

Even States which have adopted many of the proposed restrictions, could be better, says McCartt.

McCartt recognizes that while further restrictions it supports may be difficult is the evidence that legislators Act taking into account the proposals are always "politically popular."
