NC Troopers Report Decline In Teen Driver Deaths

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol says it is seeing a decrease in the number of teen driver fatalities across the state.

The patrol said on Monday that it has investigated the deaths of 28 teen drivers so far this year. That compares with 47 such fatalities through the same period in 2009.

Highway Patrol Col. Randy Glover says troopers will continue to look at ways on improving the numbers.

This year the Highway Patrol conducted an operation in May and June near high schools around North Carolina to enforce traffic laws and educate drivers.

    Good! Now only if that number can get to 0, then it will be as good as it gets.
