ATLANTA - Teenagers are being more cautious behind the wheel. The CDC reports young drivers are more likely to wear seat belts and less likely to get into a car with someone who has been drinking.
The findings are based on data from 1991 through 2011.
But, officials with the CDC say there is still room for improvement. They say roughly 30% of teens admit to sending texts or emails while on the road.
Earlier this year, the CDC released a different survey that shows teen car deaths fell 41% between 2000 and 2009.
