Caption: A new report on teen driver safety released today by The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and State FarmŽ shows encouraging trends among teen passengers. Overall, the report measured a 47 percent decline in teen driver-related fatalities over the past six years. Still, crashes remain the leading cause of death for U.S. teens and the report presents opportunities to "apply the gas" on reducing risks.
