The survey found teens often take the wheel amid commotion, anger or fatigue. More than 90% of high school students surveyed also reported that their peers regularly drive while text-messaging, talking on the phone or just simply driving too fast.

Daniel Vocelle says, "Your friends aren't going to hate you if you ask them to slow down. Or kick you out of the car and not be your friend anymore. It's just simply asking someone to be a little more considerate for your life when they're driving."

Car crashes remain the number one killer of teenagers in the United States.
