New data being released confirms that teenage drivers cost insurers more money than any other age group. And, in Arizona, AAA’s Stephanie Dembowski says teens not only have more crashes but are more likely to have some types of collisions than others.

“They rear-ended the other party, insured not at fault, they backed up unsafely, they lost control of the vehicle, they collided with a parked vehicle, or failure to yield,” Dembowski said.

She notes that traffic fatalities are the leading cause of death for teens and that there are several educational programs available to help make your teen’s driving experience safer.
