After years of decline, the number of young teen driver deaths in the United States saw its biggest increase in a decade, although analysts can't say if it's texting, poor training or some other factor that is to blame.
The stagehands' union is planning a picket line outside the Tony Awards _ complete with a giant inflatable rat.
"We know from research and experience that teen drivers are not only a danger to themselves but also a danger to others on the roadways. So these numbers are cause for concern," said Allan Williams, a researcher who formerly served as chief scientist at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Mr. Williams added that improving economic conditions are contributing to an increase in teen driving in 2011 and 2012, raising the likelihood for an accident.
