Why This Indicator Matters

As children age, they encounter new environments and challenges that pose new risks to their safety. Teenagers are significantly more likely to die from injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents and firearms than children of younger ages.

Driving at night can be dangerous, especially for young, inexperienced drivers. Reduced visibility creates dangerous roads, and drivers have less time to react to road signs, curves, other cars, pedestrians, and anything that might come out in front of them. The rate of fatal crashes at night for drivers aged 16–19 is approximately three times greater per mile driven compared to adult drivers.

This indicator utilizes military time. Military time is known as the “24-hour clock.” Time starts at 00:00 and ends at 24:00. Hours and minutes are represented by two digits; for example, 1:00 AM is 01:00, and 1:00 PM is 13:00.
