Newly analyzed State Farm(R) claims data shows the trend continues – October remains the most dangerous month of the year for teen driver crashes nationally. In California, the numbers aren’t much different; February tops the list as the most accident prone month for teens, followed closely by October.

When we asked teens why their peers text while driving even though they know it is dangerous, the general response is that staying connected is more important than ever to Generation Y.

Parents can play a major role in closing the awareness gap with their teens. According to the survey, those teens whose parents frequently talked with them about safe driving practices have the clearest understanding of what represents risky driving behavior.
