CHART OF THE DAY: The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety released a new study showing a correlation between the number of young passengers in a car and the risk of a teenage driver dying in a crash. For today's chart, we compared the total number of car crashes in each category to the total number of teen driver fatalities in those same categories. As you can see, a teen driver who's been in a car accident with three passengers under the age of 21 is 80 percent more likely to die, while that same driver is almost 40 percent less likely to die if he has at least one adult over 34 in the car.

- Risk taking imaturity of the frontal/limbic balance. Perhaps the French super hard driving test and costs might be best applied to this age group in the USA where getting a driver's license is way too easy. I wonder what the death rate difference is even at the same age?
