Survey finds teen girls more aggressive drivers than boys

A newly released survey of teen driver attitudes in the United States suggests that teenaged girls are becoming more aggressive and distracted drivers while teenaged boys are becoming safer. Teens also said they consider having their parents in the car with them more distracting than their friends – and they report wearing their seatbelts more regularly than their parents do.
