MN Laws for Newly Licensed Teen Drivers

March 19, 2009 - 7:05 AM

Follow the link below to view a fact sheet from the MN Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) regarding the new Minnesota teen driving laws: Teen Driving Laws-MN OTS

According to the Minnesota Department of Health, the leading cause of death for Minnesota’s 15- to 17-year-olds is traffic crashes. From 1999 to 2003, Minnesota traffic crashes took 236 teen lives — eclipsing the combined death total of the next four leading causes of death. Few relationships in human behavior are as simple and clear as that between age and crash involvement.
