One of the causes of juvenile delinquency is impulsiveness?teens don’t think before they act. It could be because their brains haven’t finished developing yet.
But no matter what the reason is, a new study reveals that teens who drive without a license are disproportionately involved in fatal crashes. A survey of more than 5,000 teens across the country revealed that about 6% of students in grades 9 through 11 reported driving unsupervised without a license. 20% of 14- to 18-year-old drivers involved in fatal crashes in 2006 did not have a license.
