UPDATE: Listen to the KPCC interview about teen driving safety ›
Dr. Bharath Chakravarthy is scheduled to appear on KPCC’s Patt Morrison show at approximately 2:05 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 16 to discuss teen driving safety. Chakravarthy, associate director of UC Irvine’s Center for Trauma and Injury Prevention Research, will comment on a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that examined the results of teen driving restrictions in the United States.
The study concluded that states with more restrictive teen licensing programs saw substantially lower fatal crash incidence for 16-year-old drivers but somewhat higher fatal crash incidence for 18-year-old drivers.
