(UNDATED) - This week marks the tenth anniversary of National Teen Driver Safety Week. And things look much different than they did ten years ago.

In Indiana, the number of teens involved in fatal car crashes has gone down by 30 percent, 166 in 2005 compared to 117 in 2015.

In the United States the numbers have decreased nearly 43 percent in the past decade.

In 2015, 4,308 teens were involved in fatal crashes compared to 7,500 in 2005.

Studies from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety attribute reductions in crash deaths to strong Graduated Driver Licensing programs.
