Moreover, they are more likely to run stop signs and red lights for fun. Statistics show that young drivers cause most accidents. More than five thousand U.S. teens die each year in accidents. The rate of crashes, fatal and nonfatal, per mile driven for 16-year-old drivers is almost 10 times the rate for drivers of older ages, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The rate of crashes, fatal and nonfatal, per mile driven for 16-year- old drivers is almost 10 times the rate for drivers of older ages, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Do this two to three times a day until the skin is healed. Apply an ice pack wrapped in a cloth or a cold, wet washcloth for a few minutes. Give tylenol or ibuprofen for pain.
