ATLANTA–Fatal car crashes involving teen drivers fell by a third in the last five years, according to a new Federal report by the Centers for Disease Control released today. The CDC said that the number of deaths and accidents dropped nearly 36% in 2008. Experts say that the decrease could be related to cars having better air bags and highway improvements. According to the report, the reason for the decrease is that law enforcements are getting tougher on when teens can drive and how many passengers they can carry. The CDC found that Wyoming had the highest death rate, with about 60 traffic fatalities involving teen drivers. New York and New Jersey had the lowest with 10. Kansas is ranked 19th with nearly 31.
