Teens reveal risky situations

David Stuart

ALMOST 40% of Queensland teens have been in a car with a driver who was over the legal alcohol limit, RACQ's latest data reveals.

It also shows that one in three teens has taken a selfie while driving.

Of the more than 2000 Queensland senior students surveyed, 75% admitted they had been in a situation where, as a passenger, they believed they might die.

The numbers were compiled through RACQ's Docudrama education program, which is presented in more than 50 schools across Queensland.
