Data from Albuquerque High, Rio Grande High and Albuquerque Academy students also found that the more often a teen had ridden with an impaired adult, the less risky the teen viewed that behavior. According to the study, 68 percent of the time the impaired adult was a family member. The statistics are based on responses from more than 1,000 students.
