Amount of teens drinking and driving reduced by 50% since 1990s

A new report released by federal officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that the percentage of U.S. teens who admit to drinking and driving has decreased from 22.3% in 1991 to 10.3% in 2011.

The CDC stated that the decrease is linked to the stricter drunk driving laws, more driving restrictions on teens, and expensive gas prices keeping teens from driving.

Despite the nearly 54% decrease, officials have stated that nearly 1 million teens reported that they drank alcohol before driving at some point last year. The data for this survey was collected from thousands of high school students across 41 states in the U.S.
