(KSL News) The number of teens involved in accidents on the road is actually down in the state.

The most recent data available shows teens were involved in 27 percent of crashes in 2005. That is down 19 percent from 1996.

Public safety officials say the state's new graduated driver licensing law may be responsible for the decrease, because the law puts restrictions on when teens can be on the road and how many people can be in the car.
