Drinking and driving decreases among U.S. teens

The teenage drinking and driving rate in the U.S. has decreased by half since 1991, according to data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In 2011, 10.3% of high school students reported that they drank alcohol before driving within in the past 30 days. This is about a 54% decrease from the 22.3% rate of drinking and driving that was reported by teens in 1991.

The data was collected from thousands of teens in high schools across 41 states in the U.S. Officials stated that this number is a headed in the right direction, but nearly 1 million high school teens still report drinking and driving within the past year.
