New U-M Injury Prevention Center Visual Abstract and Publication Summary now available


We are excited to offer a new Publication Summary and Visual Abstract on placed-based variation in the crash reduction from the implementation of GDL in Michigan. U-M Injury Prevention Center Director of Statistics and Methods Dr. Jason Goldstick and co-authors Dr. Patrick Carter, Dr. Farideh Almani, Dr. Shannon Brines, and Dr. Jean Shope focused on the differential reduction in the teen motor vehicle crash rate as a function of crash location. The findings from this work, “Spatial variation in teens’ crash rate reduction following the implementation of a graduated driver licensing program in Michigan,” showed that the GDL program corresponds with a greater crash rate reduction in certain locales.
