The Chicago Tribune reports that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that the percentage of teens who drink and drive have dropped by more than half in the past 20 years.
The Tribune states that:
The percentage of teens ages 16 to 19 who drink and drive has fallen by 54 percent since 1991.
Teens and alcohol will never separate completely. One in 10 teens still drives drunk regularly, according to the CDC’s Vital Signs report for October, and 85 percent of those binge-drink. Boys are more likely to drive drunk than are girls; Hispanics more than whites and blacks. The soberest demographic group is female black teens.
