Last year 115 people between the ages of 4-33, were killed per day on the nations roads, Jerry Connolly, Polk County’s Traffic Homicide supervisor said.

He related to the Kiwanis Club that teen drivers statistically speaking are the most likely victims of traffic accidents. More than 32,000 people were involved in wrecks last year and 383 were killed on Florida roads in which a teen was driving. The most likely victim is a 16-year-old, he said according to the numbers.
