October 17, 2019

SOUTH CAROLINA – According to an online news story reported by foxbusiness.com, a recent study found that South Carolina is among the Top Five states in the U.S. for teenage drinking and driving. The study, conducted by Cheapcarinsurancequotes.com, analyzed data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.*

The data used for the study included the number of teens who admitted to drinking alcohol, the number of teens who reported drinking and driving in the last 30 days, and the number of teens who said they rode in a vehicle with someone who had been drinking. The study also looked for a correlation between teenage drinking and driving and fatal alcohol-related traffic accidents.
