Is it really working
Is it Really Working???

  • According to the U.S. Department of Transportation:

    • In 2004, 14% of all drivers involved in fatal crashes were between the ages of 15 and 20. (3,620)

    • HOWEVER, this group represents only 6.6% of the driving population.

    • The #1 cause of death for 16-24 year olds is related to driving collisions.


Is it really working1
Is it Really Working???

  • Most crashes caused by teens occur between the hours of 10:00 pm and midnight.

  • Although young drivers do only 20% of their driving at night, 50% of their fatalities occur at night.

    - National Transportation Safety Board

    - Insurance Information Institute


Is it really working2
Is it Really Working???

  • “A study released in July 2006 found that GDL programs can reduce the incidence of fatal crashes for 16-year old drivers by an average of 11%.”

  • “Every evaluation of

    a state’s GDL system

    has identified crash

    reductions, some as

    high as 60%.”


So what is the purpose
So What is the Purpose???

  • “A teen with a new driver’s license needs time and guidance to gain driving experience and skills in reduced-risk settings.”

    With the GDL System…

  • The introduction to driving privileges is gradual, so that new drivers can obtain sufficient instruction and driving experience.
