The “5 to Drive” rules of the road are the focus of National Teen Driver Safety Week, Oct. 16-22. The week takes aim at motor vehicle crashes, the No. 1 cause of death for 15- to 19-year-olds. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration campaign focuses on five main risks to teen drivers: alcohol use, not wearing seat belts, distracted driving, speeding and extra passengers.
